NEW Kershaw Emerson Commander Auto!
Great idea! and pulled off perfectly by Kershaw. The Commander is a classic and much sought after blade. This auto version really lives up to the reputation of the original, hard use folder from Emerson. We have them at www.knifecenter.com
This will be a limited run. The button pulls back to release. It is super fast and smooth and will be available in plain and combo edge.
Here is the info from Kershaw:
No compromises. That was the single principle we started with. The Auto Commander is the singular result. A joint project between Emerson Knives, Kershaw Knives, and designers Grant & Gavin Hawk, the Auto Commander is built with extreme precision from top-of-the-line materials. An S30V stainless blade – the current state-of-the-art steel for all around performance. Non-reflective matte-black Tungsten DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating. The famous Commander curved blade shape. And automatic operation.
But with automatic operation comes the need for security. The Auto Commander delivers with the CrossFire Auto Lock, designed by Grant & Gavin Hawk. Toss it on a table, snag it on a seatbelt, mandhandle it on a duty belt – there’s no chance the blade will accidentally deploy. Why? Because the unique CrossFire lock require two motions to work. First slide the lock toward the knife’s spine, then pull down toward the butt. Only then will the blade deploy with a satisfying click into position. Even with gloves. it’s fast and easy to deploy. And when the blade is open, the CrossFire serves as a secondary lock.
This is a limited run of an exceptional knife. Get yours now.
