The Emerson A-100 is described perfectly with those three words. Featuring a simple and aesthetically pleasing straight blade, with an equally simple straight handle. The Emerson A-100 is essential to the Emerson legacy. It dates before our patented Wave Feature. Not wowed by the flashy and novelty knives of today? Well, it doesn't get any simpler than this. Tradition and elegance is all it takes. See for yourself. Before bursting into the tactical scene, Ernest Emerson was already making the A-100 design. This knife became the archetype from which all of his other designs have evolved . It truly is the “Father” of all of our tactical designs.
In fact it might be the “Grandfather” of all tactical knife designs that now exist. It’s simple, it works, and it never gives up.
Although we moved to a more tactical area of knife making, the Emerson A-100 remains one of our most beloved designs. It's small and simple making for a great, straight forward Everyday Carry.
