No other way to describe it. But is the ER really as tough as it looks? Is it really a knife capable of most of what a fixed-blade can do, such as prying? How touch is the all-important pivot?

I put the ER M.P.C. next to the Sebbie Small Regular and it makes the Sebbie look like a...well, you get the idea :D

BTW, anyone know how to dissasemble this baby?
With a daisy-cutter?

I agree about the overall strength of the knife. I would rate my Nemesis right up there with my Strider SnG.

ER - Great knives! I have the Fulcrum folder - no clip - rides in a sheath. I prefer the belt carry, probably because of all my military/law enforcement years. Looks and feels like it is from another planet.

Hey, aren't these just copies of the Dark Ops knives?

ROTFLMAO!! :D :D

If they are, there's gonna be some serious de-animation activity when super SEAL "The Shadow" finds out. :barf:

good knives, i like the nemisis though which is par for the course for me, its wayy higher than the MPC (all i have found anyway) well maybe not wayy higher, but about $100 IIRC.

Okay, I know they are tough knives, but how much tougher are they? I owned an MPC for a few months, before I sold or traded (can't remember, but thanks, Boink) and I noticed the edge geometry is pretty thick, so of course it might seem tougher, but is it really? and of course, the edge may never be as sharp also.

I wonder this myself. My question is this: Can it sustain *repeated* use as a rescue knife with lots of prying, for instance, without deformation and a trip back to the factory?

I have purchased a Buck Strider spearpoint. I am sure it can pry and do anything for *awhile* but the liner lock quite obviously will deform and the blade will be loose, that is, if the rivets don't give way. The ER MPC looks much more solid than the Buck Strider in this way, but I wonder what would happen if I pried a stuck window open, for instance, or had to escape from a derailed train a bunch of times :)

I heard that for such purposes many people use a peculiar tool called Fixed Blade...
