I managed to pick up the only one in stock at knifecenter.com today for $126.95 - thanks for the info. As soon as I made my purchase they went back to back-order status.

EM7BSFSW Emerson CQC7 Wave Tanto Blade Satin/Stone Washed Finished Combo 3.4"" Blade $126.95
I think the next one may be the "Super CQC-7 model" with the larger blade running $168.95.

Hey Guys I have a question on the handles, are they all the rough "flat file" like texture? Kinda like a file that you would use to deburr something? I'm looking for more smooth style handle as I wear dress & dress casual pants mainly. They look really sweet I've been looking for a replacement blade. Thanks in advance

The texture of the handles seems to be very similar on the BM 970 and the EKI CQC-7s...they are a rough texture, but not so much as to ruin quality pants IMO.

Just my opinion, but if your looking at the Emerson line please look into the CQC-10. The handle is out of this world in your hand and the blade is a much more usable design.
I have several 710s now and gave one in D2 to each of my sons for Christmas. I also have picked up some more EKI products, such as a couple more CQC-7s, Commander, CQC-8, and CQC-11 models.

I have since picked up three 806-901 SBK models. They are indeed very nice sturdy knives and M4 makes them even better.

Buy from Emerson. After dealing with benchmade on a problem I will never buy from them again. Disgusting customer service.

My Emerson CQC-7 was a serrated edge. It is now a straight edge from all the years of use, abuse and resharpening. Great knife.

Sorry to hear that - I have never had anything but great customer service from Benchmade on old and newer knives.

There was a design flaw with one of their knives in the early 90s. They did nothing to fix the problem. I let a friend who is a master machinist and part time knife make look at it. He found a great and simple solution to the problem. Everyone who handled the knife loved his fix. I thought I would be nice and contacted Benchmade with the solution he found.

Benchmade demanded the knife be surrendered to them immediately along with the data on the modification or risk prosecution for patent violations.

Lost the knife in Mexico, replaced it with a real Emerson.

In the 1990s, the CQC6, the Benchmade model and/or Emerson's own production CQC7 were the knives that were state of the art. Yes, I have them - and purchased them at dealer pricing.

In response to the question, I looked on Ernie's website. Thanks a lot guys! I had not bought his CQC7 tanto points with the wave feature because I don't like a tanto blade on a folder. There it appeared! A stone washed, plain blade CQC7 with the wave feature. Ohhhhhhhh. It is going to hurt to spend $200 when the original knives cost me $60 a piece!!
