MR emerson, I own many of your knife and love them . IM looking at the CQC-8 or horseman. can you fill me in on the backround of the CQC-8. I herd somewhere that it was made and used for some people in a foriegn battle group... I dont remember where?? bosnia? I need a good blade that would it be good slashing and thrust. OR what would you recommend....Thanks John B...

Dear John B.,

The CQC-8 was and is a favorite of the British SAS and several U.S. groups both individually and unit size. It is a great battle tested knife that has drawn blood (literally) more times than we will ever admit. It is good for both slashing and thrusting.

Best Regards,
