    Not often I'm thinking of Emerson designs but the Launch 5 looks really interesting. No recurve, Emersonergos and Kershaw quality.

    Ungh, I may have to start saving the pennies that 0220 is is a pretty thing. Although on the realistically affordable side the Ferrite is mighty tempting. The Barge might be a good grab for adding to a toolbox.

    Their site is now showing off all the new stuff. They have a carabiner at the bottom of their page that looks like it's designed to tear the everloving stuffing out of your pocket.

    The last two ZT carbon fiber knives interest me a little. The rest of the regular Kershaws were okay, but nothing I really want. They really are dumping tons of new models out every year.

    I like the idea of the 450cf. The 909 appeals to me, too.

    I've seen around 2/3 of it and I often though, oh, nice design, budget friendly, but A/O.
    Thanks, but no thanks.

    I was surprised they didn't manage to put in a spring into the Emerson folder.
    But I like that small Auto, if it's fired with the push of a button springs are fine, and illegal over here :(

    It's nice to see them changing the design of their deep carry clips. The old design sucked. The screws would always get caught on my pocket

    The launch 5 is an Emerson design.

    Yes, but that's an Auto, that's ok.
    In autos they use circular springs and I like the way the blade comes out, with an even force for the whole way. Assisted openers to me always feel like the blade is kicked into my hands with a very hard initial force.
    It's just my personal opinion on it but I believe if you put a spring into the opening mechanism, make it automatic or just make a good manual folder like the Chill which doesn't need springs or ball bearings to be super smooth.
    And about the Emerson i should have said, I'm surprised they didn't make an assisted wave opener knife :p

    When you really, really, REALLY need a knife open fast.

    I can just imagine - the wave catches on the edge of your pocket, and the spring fires before the knife clears your pocket, the blade flying open against the pocket seams - as it gracefully catapults itself off your jeans and into your hand!
    :rofl:

    Yeah, I don't carry my CQC-5k because it was always hard to get it out of my pocket without opening the blade, now imagine that with a spring inside. It's a pity because I really like how the laminated leather scales turned out...
