Limited Edition Custom Caliber Emerson Kershaw CQC-7K

By 248 Shooter

Emerson knives are known for making high-quality blades that stand the test of time. In conjunction with Kershaw knives, Emerson has developed the Emerson Kershaw CQC series. Quickly becoming one of the most popular knives the CQC-7K is flying off the shelves of wholesalers and retailers.

Detroit Bullet Works was able to obtain only 50 of these knives for sale to the public. However, these are no average CQC-7K these are customs creations of art. DBW has replaced the standard black thumb disk with a bullet disk. Available in 300 Blackout, .40 S&W or 9mm for a limited time on a pre-order basis.

Here is some info on the CQC-7K if you have not seen this knife in person.

Kershaw Knives and Emerson Knives have joined forces on a series of knives that combine the precision engineering of Kershaw with Emerson’s uncompromising functional design.

The CQC-7K features a modified Tanto blade for both slicing and punching capability. The blade has two finishes: satin finish on the grind and a stonewashed finish on the upper. The handle’s front scale of textured G-10 offers a secure grip and the handle’s stainless steel back has a solid frame lock.

The CQC-7K is a manual opener using either the thumb disk or the patented Emerson “wave shaped feature.” This opening feature enables the knife to be opened as it is removed from the pocket. By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use. A small wave-shaped tab on the top of the blade is built to catch on the pocket seam, opening the knife as it comes out of the pocket. This instant-open feature is a favorite among military, rescue, and law enforcement knife users.

This knife design based off the Emerson Reliant model without the thumb hole and the pocket clip is reversible for left- or right-handed carry.

The CQC 7K is a high-quality knife and has been my go to folding knife for some time. When you pair, the quality of this weapon with the sleek style and class of a brass bullet in your preferred caliber upgraded thumb disk, it makes the blade stand out from the crowd. This is what I call functional beauty in that it’s affordable enough for EDC and the daily beating but still classy and a step above what you will typically find in the market at this price.

DBW is doing these as a limited run in conjunction with the team at 248Shooter. This is a great way to get a fantastic blade for a screaming price as well as help out two local Michigan businesses.
