    Worst retort ever. Enjoy the egg, champ. “Oh. He called me angry. I better call him angry back to cover up my own anger!”

    I have purchased 4 emerson knives this year and they have all been fine

    Using them, the chisel grind side doesn’t bother me anymore.
    It was a real problem for me 3 years ago but I don’t mind it anymore

    the lock stick is annoying but I really think it is a design feature of the knife. Something from the past IMO but as long as the lock is good I am fine

    I really think the main problem is the price, that is for sure.... the brand has a strong recognition in the hobby, good point for EKI

    Considering the brand and the number of forum and groups active on the internet I just think the Emerson fans are under represented here and on YouTube.

    If you are a fan of EKI, good to you! enjoy your knives

    if you are not a fan of EKI, good to you! Enjoy your knives (from other brands)

    nothing dramatic here

    What if I'm smack dab in the middle? What do I do? That's it, I'm just not going to enjoy any of them :mad:

    That is a little bit where I stand too but I don’t mind

    I have accepted Emerson knives are not the best value and that I will have to get some lemons before getting some good ones.
    So I take my time ;)
    I have 4 EKI in my collection for the moment, 3 are great, one is ok and I sold 3 others that I had before and were not good.

    I enjoy the ones I have
    I also enjoy knives from other brands

    EKI is neither Spyderco, nor Hinderer ...

    If you look for a tacticool g10 folders, IMO the mili-PM-para line from Spyderco offers a better value than most Emerson
    bitEmerson has something cool and rustic to them that make them fun
