Emerson Knife Book Update

By November 7, 2015January 20th, 2016Blog, Collectors Association, Emerson Blog Project, News

Here is the Emerson Knife Book Update . As some of you may know we are compiling a book on the CQC-7 knife. A book written by you. The owners and users who are the ones who can really tell the stories. And we've had a tremendous response. But after thinking about it, this wasn't fair to all the owners of other Emerson Model Knives. So we are now opening the project up to all stories of all models of Emersons – not just the CQC-7. So for all the owners of other Emerson Knives the book is now open for you also. We'll just create a separate chapter for Commanders, CQC-8's, CQC-15's, etc. If you want to include pictures, just make sure they are “cleared” and are at 300 DPI.

Now, I know the history of Emerson Knives but only you know the stories. So what I want to do is to ask you to write down and submit your stories of your knives. It can be anything from, “I pried open the door of the burning vehicle to, the lady behind the counter handed me the knife and the receipt and now she's my wife.” I know that there are stories that are interesting, humorous and even heroic, I would like to hear them all. For example, I know of one where a police officer lost his knife in a tussle on the ground and found his knife 2 years later when he went back and checked under a bush at the scene. That's a cool story. I also know that there are plenty of combat stories out there as well.

I know you've all got stories. It can even be just about what the knife means to you, perhaps it was a present from a loved one or a father that carries a special meaning. I want to hear your story. Everyone wants to hear your story.

You will need to agree to a release for publication here:

You can change the names or dates if you need to for various reasons or you can request to remain anonymous, but in the book I would really like to put your name behind each story so you can say, that's me, when you show off the book to family or friends.

We'll also include a section for the “pimpers” that are out there and for those of you that have customized your own Emerson, so be sure to get those pictures to us as well, (300 dpi).

When you send in your story be sure you include your contact information and agree to the form or we won't be able to use your story.

Now, I can't guarantee that we will publish every story but we'll do our best to get yours in. And I don't care if its 10 sentences or 10 pages long. Just try to email it to us so we don't have to retype a handwritten copy. But, if that's all you've got, we'll take that too.

Wait, there's more. When we get to the end, I am going to put all the names who have submitted their stories into a pot and draw out a name. The winner will get a custom, handmade CQC-6 knife made by me to commemorate the story of the Emerson history. Versions of this knife have sold for up to ten thousand dollars.

So there is my carrot. We'll publish the book, I'll build the knife, all you need to do is send in your story. I'm not asking you to be a part of the Emerson history, you already are part of the Emerson history. Let's let the world know. So start putting your story down on paper and let's get the ball rolling!
