Ernest Emerson is the Godfather of the tactical knife. Many years ago some sailors claiming to be “underwater welders” approached Ernie to make a knife specifically for their use. Turns out those sailors were SEALs. Emerson has made knives for NASA that have been taken into space. A knife carried on the raid to kill Osama bin Laden fetched $35,400 at auction. The list of awards, movie and book appearances Emerson knives have made is too long to list. To put it plainly Ernest Emerson makes the best tactical knife you can carry.
He also makes knives for auction. This year he is offering at auction a knife for a cause. A good cause actually – curing breast cancer.
