The tactical knife industry was revolutionized in March of 1999 when Emerson Knives was granted United States Patent #5,878,500 for Ernest Emerson's "Self-Opening Folding Knife" invention. Simply put, the ability to deploy the blade of a folding knife while doing little more than pulling the knife out of your pocket, has inherrent advantages with respect to speed, convenience, and ease of use.
Credit given where credit due. To Ernie Emerson!
Another member on this forum got me started on this project (you know who you are, T, lucchese boots & kudos given!). I've several Emerson 'waved' knives, from production to custom. I was curious if I could incorporate the wave feature into a knife I already had. I chose a Diskin Volcan to modify. The knife started out box stock as a DA folder. This particular knife has been 'rode hard and put up wet'. It came to me from the factory with a nick in the belly of the blade that will be eventually be sharpened out. It was a down and dirty operation. I wanted results and was wan of the particulars. Several pics to follow.
A day without recoil is like a day without sunshine!
