NUTNFANCY SHOT 2012: Emerson Knives, Philosophy of Combat and Quality
This video will probably boot Emerson sales by 300% and it turned out awesome on on many levels. That's because you will get rare insight on the man behind the blades and his philosophy: Ernest R. Emerson. He is our meaningful and well spoken host for yet another GOLD STAR Nutnfancy SHOT Show booth review. Mr. Emerson, a respected combat knife source for decades among British and US Special Operations and responsible civilians, is a man of character and sincerity. I am struck by his loyalty to his customers, his understanding of friendship, and confidence is his philosophy. He is knowledgeable, sincere, humble, meaningful, anti-nonsense, and true. It is a joy to hear him discuss his blades and philosophies as he and I see many things the same way. From this integrity and passion springs forth the Emerson blades which we see and discuss in detail. These are enduring designs, not changed by whim or marking executives, having served his customers in serious roles for many years. I respect the steel, the designs of function, and the consistency of Emerson. Like he says, these knives are not designed by committee. Along this interesting discussion TacticalDoodle and I have Earnie talk about his chisel and single edge grinds on his blades, choices of materials, his patented Pocket Opening feature (Wave), and more. We see the Commander, Tactical Persian, Like his favorite '67 Camaro, these knives bespeak of a certain elegant design that needs no explanation and is not diminished by the passage of time. If you like knives of any kind, you will find gold in this touchstone interview with Mr. Emerson himself and I thank him for his time.////////////////////////Video quality diminished from HD original.
