Re: the Emerson Persian
Right now the knife is on a standby basis for manufacturing. We never completely retire any model. However, it is not currently being made and there is no definite time for a restart. The folder is a "folding" version of a fixed blade I made over 20 years ago. It is based on a Persian Sabre design, shrunk down to a folder. It cuts incredibly well and is wickedly sharp. It takes some getting used to since there is so much blade and so much curve. In the end I guess the love/hate thing is like the way some people like Fords and some like Chevy's. I like Chevy's I have a beautiful fully restored 67 Camaro.
