The Mini Commander
The Emerson Mini Commander is a smaller and more pocket-friendly version of the classic Emerson Commander. Basically, it is a scaled-down Commander removing roughly half an inch of blade length as well as handle length. It features our patented Emerson Wave Feature as well as the Commander's beautiful recurve blade. The Emerson Commander is one of our most popular and beloved models to date and has won the Blade Show Knife of the Year. The Mini Commander is perfect for those who love the design but are looking for a more pocket-friendly version of a bulky Emerson classic.
It incorporates some of the most advanced ergonomics ever featured on a folding knife. It has seen decades of use with elite armed forces, European Military strike teams and NATO Counter-Terrorist units throughout the world and was chosen by the U.S. Navy SEAL teams for issue to special units within the Naval Special Forces Units. Because of its ruggedness, it has become a favorite of hunters and adventurers the world over.
The Emerson Commander is a Blade Show Award Winning Knife, and for good reason. It features a beautiful recurve blade paired with our patented Emerson Wave Feature. The blade curves in a way that compliments natural arm movement and flows flawlessly along with swings and jabs of combat. With black G-10 handles and your choice of a stone washed or black blade, this is the perfect tactical knife.
HOW TO USE THE WAVE FEATURE
An important part of knowing the anatomy of an Emerson Knife is knowing how to utilize it. Using the patented Emerson Wave Feature correctly, you can deploy the knife out of pocket rapidly. It takes some practice to master. See how it's done in the video above.
BLADE STYLE: RECURVE
The recurve blade is most commonly associated with the Emerson Commander. Starting from the rear of the cutting edge, it arcs upwards, then downwards. Lastly, it swoops elegantly upwards to the tip.
Fun Fact: The Emerson Commander was the recipient of the Knife of the Year award at the annual Blade Show in Atlanta!
Standoff Spacers have been standard on all Emerson Knife models since 2014. Any knife ordered from our site from that year will receive one of these models.
Lanyard Holes serve one purpose: attaching a paracord lanyard if you choose to get one. We get asked that question quite a lot!
The Thumb Button is there so that you may open the knife single handedly . Specifically with your thumb. Some people are naturals at it and some have to learn. Either way, it's very useful.
