Emerson has scaled down the CQC-7 but kept the blade thickness at .125 inches and the handles and liners the same thickness as the original model. The result is a knife that is as strong if not stronger than its big brother. Yes, you can use this pocket-sized version to open letters too, but you can also punch it through a car door if you need to.
The Mini-CQC-7 features Emerson’s Patented "wave shaped opening feature" or Remote Pocket Opener. In an emergency or injury situation the knife can be opened with one hand as it is drawn from the pocket.
The Emerson “wave shaped feature”, also called the remote pocket opener, is the most dynamic and advanced feature ever designed for folding knives. This device allows you to open the knife literally, as it is removed from the pocket. This makes any Emerson Knife with the “wave shaped feature” the fastest deploying folding knife in the world. Faster than an automatic, your knife is open as it comes up into your hand-ready for use. The Emerson “wave shaped feature” is now officially required on all the knives they supply to the Military Combat units, Military search and Rescue units and Law Enforcement agencies.
Emerson Knives are made 100% in America of American Materials by American Workers and owned and run by a true American Craftsman – Ernest Emerson.
NOTE: When other knife companies make a scaled down version of one of their models they also make the handles and blade thinner in proportion to the overall length. This weakens the overall strength and compromises the structural integrity of the knife. This is fine if you're making a light duty penknife or letter opener.

Care and Maintenance
Minimal care is all that is required to insure the maximum potential that your knife can provide for you. Clean the knife periodically and lubricate the pivot area with light oil, especially after exposure to salt water or acidic environment.
Your Emerson knife is built to withstand the rigors of extreme use, but it is a knife, not a chisel, screwdriver or hammer, and it is not intended for use as such. This knife is a cutting tool and is not designed for throwing. Do not use it in that capacity.
