    I’ve been eyeing a Roadhouse but for some reason it seems like there are fewer reviews for it than any other Emerson. What’s the opinion here on one especially the Desert Roadhouse. Thanks

    Nice large folder. The tan gets dirty easily. Feels great in hand.

    Next to a horseman.

    Next to a Spyderco military

    In my opinion, the Roadhouse is the ultimate folding fighting tanto. The size is right, the grip is excellent. The slightly curved main edge makes it a better slicer than the 5,6,7, Bulldog, etc.

    I’ve been looking at them, too, but I’d like to have that design a bit larger. Would love to have a regular production Super Roadhouse.

    Have you handled the Roadhouse? The Super is a very big knife. The Roadhouse is a substantial knife and I generally prefer folders with blades that are a full 4 inches.
