The Emerson Mini CQC-8, also known as the Emerson Horseman knife, is essentially our classic CQC-8 but shrunken down a bit. It has a full inch taken off the standard size, with a half an inch coming off the handle length and a half an inch off the blade length. The Mini CQC-8 features a handle design perfect for a comfortable forward and reverse grip. The handles have a finger guard preventing your finger from slipping forward onto the cutting edge when in use. The Mini CQC-8 features a simple, yet attractive upswept blade paired with our patented Emerson Wave Feature. The Mini version is a favorite among our employees for the simple reason of being portable and simple.
