Thanks, I'll check them out. I would have never thought to look at a Cold Steel.I just purchased a cold steel recon 1 off amazon for 60 bucks and wow, they aren't kidding about this thing. Actually reminds me off the CQC-13 a bit. Perfect lockup, strongest lock out there, awesome blade shape and handle ergos. I stripped the coating and now its perfect. I'd recommend one of the Recon 1's, Ak-47s or American lawman over an Emerson if you're looking for "hard use tactical". This is coming from a person who hates Cold Steel as a company, but is starting to like their knives.
