You must be an Emerson Collector's Association Member to participate in Lottery.


A lot of time, thought and effort has gone into the creation and hosting of this On-Line Virtual Knife Show Lottery. As you know, there are many more people interested in obtaining Custom Emerson Knives than I can make. This has led to some “seeding” of our lotteries at shows by some who attempt to up their chance of getting an Emerson Handmade Custom Knife. As you know, the value of an Emerson Knife literally doubles in value the moment it crosses the table from my hands to the new owner at the shows.

In order to prevent this, “seeding” from taking place in our on-line Emerson Custom Knife Lottery and to make this as fair as possible for Emerson Collectors all over the world, we are setting the following rules in place:

In order to participate in the lottery you must be a member of the Emerson Collectors Association, the ECA. If you are not a member you would need to join in order to participate. Please click here for information on joining

You must include your ECA membership number in order to register for the knives in the on-line lottery.

The registration for joining the Emerson Collectors Association will be shut down 48 hours prior to the lottery to prevent a last minute rush to register. Membership will be closed at 1700 hrs Pacific time on Thursday, December 11, 2013. You must register prior to that time and date in order to participate in the lottery.

To all existing members of the ECA; Your name will not automatically be placed into the lottery. You must register for the lottery manually using your ECA number when asked to input it.

Your name will go into the lottery box once and there will be only one entry per registered person.

In order to insure a completely random and fair chance for all entrants, the lottery will proceed as follows; All names will be entered once into the main lottery box for all registered entrants.

A second box, (the knife box) will be filled with the names of every knife available in the lottery, one for every knife.

We will draw a name from the lottery box and then draw a knife name from the knife box. So, if we draw John Johnson from the lottery box, we will then draw a knife ticket from the knife box and the knife name on that ticket is the one that John Johnson gets from the lottery.

This will proceed until there are no more knife tickets left in the box.

There will be no alternate names drawn for the lottery knives.

If your name is drawn as the winner for any knife model then your name cannot be drawn again and will be removed from the remaining lottery drawings.

Method of payment: Payment can be made by Credit Card only. We will email you if your name is chosen.  All California residents will be charged California sales tax.

Shipping: We do require that you pay for shipping. All knives will be shipped UPS with signature required.

Winners are responsible for applicable customs fees.

    Just got my CQC-5. Perfect! Exactly the tool needed to cut through board room bull****!

    But seriously, every morning it’ll be a knockdown dragout choice between the Five and the Mach-1. I guess the Five will be for those days when I have to be “subtle.” Hah! 😀

  • Bob Minekheim says:

    Good morning SirMaam,
    I tried to register for the lotteryauction yesterday (12/03/2014) But I’m not sure if I made it in since it told me me there was a problem with my password. Knowing me I probably goofed. If it’s not too much trouble could it be checked please. My ECA# 1451

    Thank you very much
