Paid $94 on eBay. Was well worth it to me for S3VN, USA made, rock solid lockback and the sick Spyderco ergos (Small to medium hands). I would purchase it again.

Excellent knife. I use it as my EDC knife. Some people say it's a little heavy, but I find the heft to be perfect.No alignment issues and super easy to open. Good edge retention, easy to sharpen and the ergonomics are impressive.

The Kershaw Camber is design as a smaller brother of the s30v Blur. The Camber has taken what was good about the Blur and improved on it. Giving us a deeper ride pocket clip, thicker liner lock, and bigger guard for stabbing tasks. All in all this is a perfect EDC knife at a good price for USA made s30v steel. You will not regret it!

This knife is designed to be a high quality, hard use utility/camp knife. The s30v steel holds a great edge, the ergos are great in a natural grip or a reverse stabbing grip. The design is great for all your utility/camp tasks. Very good fit and finish also.

Sharpest folding knife I own and have ever seen. I don't even carry it because it is so scary sharp. There is no hilt or flipper to stop your hand from slipping forward just the excellent G10 panels. I would be afraid to stab with it because of these facts though slashing would be very effective.

I have seen this knife in videos and I immediately wanted one. Ive had it for a few days just carrying it around work, sometimes going out of my way to find something to cut. I was surprised at how smooth and nice the G10 scales felt. The pocket clip isnt tight, but will keep the knife secure in your pocket. I love the smooth deployment. GET THIS KNIFE!!!

The Kershaw/Emerson CQC-1k is one wicked looking blade that is also wicked in what it can do. I love the wave feature and the blade is great at all your edc tasks. If you have been think about getting an Emerson, but don't want to drop the money one one this is a great option.

Price: $170.00

Time Owned: 3 months

Comments:
I bought this knife just out of whim and because I kinda like the looks and how it felt in my hand. Knife feels very solid (as all TOPS knives I own), not too heavy or clumsy even it's a tad bigger than I'm used to.
This knife really shines when you have to chop/hack because of the curved handle as you don't have to squeeze the knife that hard. Even with the finger choil you just can't use the knife for very fine jobs because of the size of the blade, but it does help to be able to grab the knife closer to the tip of the blade.
Then the downside... it's the sharp top edge. The idea is great to have a secondary edge but use this knife for batoning, you loose about half the cutting energy because the blade sinks in both 'batoned' and 'batoneer' pieces equally.
But all in all, great piece of a knife =)
PS. TOPS Sheaths are my favorite because of the extra pocket.

Mine is called the CQT 747. Not sure what exactly the "Thunder Hawke" is but its a "Fox" made knife made for "Tops". I own many knives and anything made by Fox with N690 steel is hard to beat. This knife is a "beast" one of those knives that is not EDC but if the Zombie Apocalypse happens will be EDC.

START WITH NEGATIVE. Only allows right handed tip down carry. For the price you should be able to alternate to four position for carry options.
Handle scales like all Spyderco G-10 are amazing. Not too rough or too smooth, perfect. And for a four inch blade very very comfortable and light weight for daily carry. If you can get it for under $135 I suggest it.

If you wanted a tip up carry buy a pm 2
