This "XL" Kershaw-Emerson now comes with D2 blade steel! D2, a high-carbon, high-chromium tool steel, is a knifemaker favorite and offers good edge retention and hardness, as well as being more corrosion-resistant than other high-carbon steels.
The CQC-4KXL D2's big, useful blade comes in at just under four inches. For a secure and comfortable grip, the knife has a G10 front scale and steel back. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade open during use and releases easily to close. Of course, the CQC-4KXL D2 features the patented Emerson Wave Shaped Feature that was originally designed and meant for knife fighting. It's a small wave-shaped tab on the top of the blade is built to catch on the pocket seam, opening the knife as it comes out of your pocket. This instant-open feature is a favorite among military, rescue, and law enforcement knife users. Alternatively, you could just use the built-in thumb disk to open the CQC-4KXL D2 manually.
Kershaw has included a reversible pocket clip for convenient left-handed or right-handed carry.
