    Nice selection! I'd say get a Commander or Roadhouse variant next!

    You might also cosider the A100 and the CQC-10, both very good knives all around.

    Actually, either an UBR Commander or a Super Roadhouse are next on the list. Depends which I can find on the secondary market at a fair price.

    I'm the same.

    I didn't have one 3 months ago but now have:

    1. Karambit
    2. CQC-15
    3. Commander
    4. Super 8
    5. CQC-7
    6. Horseman on its way from a British Blades member
    7. CQC-7V on its way from Emerson sending out Monday
    8. Roadhouse on its way with the 7V

    They're the best knives I've found and the thing I like about them the most, is that whichever one I decide to carry that day, they all seem to feel the same in handling and use.

    Take care

    I own the original emerson benchmade folder, but I cant find it since we moved. I forget the model number but it had the partial serated edge with chisel grind. Great knife but lost in the twilight zone for now.

    I agree. I have both and to be honest I am not lusting after any Emerson's at the moment. I would like a commander or CQC7 in some form but I am quite happy with my 10 and A100! You won't be regret it!

    3 months ago I didn't have an Emerson either, traded for a Mini CQC 15 and got the bug. I picked up a Gentleman Jim on Thursday and I should have my Micro Commander on this coming Tuesday. I think that there is a Horseman in my future, how do you like it? Unless that is a CQC 8.

    My cqc 7v kicked my zt 0350 out of my pocket when I thought nothing ever would. I HAVE to get a mini commander but the only model my supplier has in stock is the PE version.

    Great collection you've got there. I love the Hawk. I got my first Emerson in March, I believe. Since then I have owned the following.

    Super Commander
    Combat Karambit
    Cqc-10 (X3)
    Horseman
    LaGriffe
    Persian
    Roadhouse
    Super Cqc-7
    Gentleman Jim
    Cqc-7
    Cqc-11
    Cqc-8
    Cqc-15

    I've sold off the majority of my other knives to pursue Emersons. I love them. I don't still have all of them. But I've kept these.

    Cqc-10 (X2)
    Persian
    Combat Karambit
    LaGriffe
    Cqc-8
    Cqc-11
    Cqc-15

    I'm just finding which knives work best for me. I think the socfk is the next one on my list :D

    Yep! You are to blame for the getting me hooked, Allen!


    If you are ever in the French Quarter, I owe you a drink or three.

    Maybe he should owe you beers for all the money he caused you to spend!

    The horseman is an awesome EDC knife! It is the smaller version of the cqc 8 which is a favorite of mine.

    I recently purchased a Emerson Journeyman and found it to be my favorite so far followed closely by the cqc 8. The journeyman has a perfect blade shape for any EDC task and has the ability to be extremely lethal with a great tip for stabbing.

    Next on my list is a mini Commander

    Nice collection. I started Emerson in a similar way. They really start to accumulate after you realize you want them all!
