Totally.That's a load of bunk. I don't even know where to start. Almost everything in that post is bunk.
Emerson's are great at being knives that get used.
So is every knife that gets used. That's a lot, from $5 pieces of crap to thousands of dollars of worth of knife.
Emerson's are terrible at being knives that sit in an a safe.
They can sit in a safe like any other knife.
They are 100% made in America which brings a higher price than something made in China.
Plenty of knives made in America cost in the same price range if not less and function great. Ever handled a Kershaw Blur?
If someone wants to put a $100 clip on their knife then more power to them.
The chisel grind is great for cutting and only having to sharpen one side? Too easy.
Not really. Not in any respect unless you're talking about thin kitchen knives. They're actually not any better or worse cutters than a lot of other grinds for their intended use. Chisel grinds are pretty bad when left thick and are much harder to sharpen compared to other grinds considering how much steel needs to be removed. And all of that black coating on all those blades? Gone. That is, if you use it enough to need to sharpen it. Chisel grinds are great for chisels. I'll grant you that. You want a folding chisel? I don't, I want a folding knife.
The wave feature is probably one of the top design features to come out in the past 50 years.
Maybe not one of the best, but it is definitely a feature to come out in the last 50 years. I tend to think locks, pocket clips, one handed opening, CNC machining, washer pivots, good stainless steel, and multitools in general are pretty up there as far as cutting tools are concerned.
When used correctly, a waved knife is the fastest deploying folder available.
Possible. Depends on the person and what they're used to and what they're wearing.
Lots of people don't like Emersons.
To each their own.
Lots of people don't like 1911s, Coke, Fords, Baseball, or Blonds either.
Yeah, but emerson knives aren't on the same level as any of those things at all. Some people don't like emersons, therefore they hate sex and having millions of dollars and private islands and Sweden. Ridiculous comparison dude.
