The Emerson A-100 is described perfectly with those three words. Featuring a simple and aesthetically pleasing straight blade, with an equally simple straight handle. The Emerson A-100 is essential to the Emerson legacy. It dates before our patented Wave Feature. Not wowed by the flashy and novelty knives of today? Well, it doesn't get any simpler than this. Tradition and elegance are all it takes. See for yourself.
