$29.25 shipped free with prime or at $35 from Amazon.

Lowest price on camel this knife has ever been. Its an awesome deal for an Emerson designed Kershaw. No speed safe opening, but the wave feature is even faster out of the pocket, plus less parts to break = more durable. This I think is the best looking model for the CQC series as well, blade shape is really sleek and easy to sharpen. It is also a very strong frame lock style.

This may seem like a regular price for these models, but note this is the XL version. Blade is 3.9 inches, and overall length of 9 inches. Not a small knife at all. Its a beast of a folder but still legal in many states.

Here are some stats:
Blade: 3.9 Inch (9.9 cm); Closed: 5 Inch (12.7 cm); Overall length: 9 Inch (22.9 cm); Weight: 6.1 Ounce (175 g)

Reviews are very good on amazon as well as the kershaw site, as well as pretty much everywhere online, or knife forums etc. Many video reviews on youtube too.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Here is a link that shows what the wave action is for these knives for people who have never seen it before. it is pretty cool, and is probably the fastest way to open a folder, probably as fast as you're gonna get to a fixed blade. http://emersonknives.com/ek_faq/wave/

Not worth it for the cheaper 8Cr14MoV steel. Better can be had for $15 or less.

And open from pulling it on your pant seam? Hello lawsuits. The proper "fastest" way to open a knife is with use and experience.

I train people and I would not suggest this opening method to even my best students. Let alone me ever use one.

I'm still not convinced I won't stab myself with a wave opener, but I really want a BIG blade... I prefer the index finger flipper of the regular speedsafes... Though the thumb stud on my blur is growing on me as well.

15yrs. Martial arts and some LE. By no means do I call myself an expert or badass but definitely not someone who has "read about it somewhere". And by all means, I tell everyone, if you have the option to run instead of using a blade. please do so.

Any kind that uses the entire hand to open for complete control. Not some system that uses an article of clothing or extraneous method to open.

Blade, grip and opening method is entirely up to the individual. Any spring assisted knife can be opened , in my opinion, faster than a switchblade. Designers have almost made those obsolete.

Don't knock it until you've tried it. I've had a couple of wave models as my EDC for the last couple of years and have had no incidents. I wouldn't buy one without the wave feature. It does take some practice to get it to open fully and consistently, you have to drag it back against the seam as you pull it out of your pocket. Not to say it never deploys when you are just trying to put it away at night, but you learn to expect that, and always treat it like it's deployed like you would always treat a gun as if its loaded.

I started with a CQC-7K and now carry a CQC-5K. The former had a bigger wave hook which catches easier than my current and smaller 5K. The OP knife is bigger than either of mine so it would probably be easy to to learn to deploy consistently but you'd have to be more deliberate when trying to remove it from your pocket without deploying it.

Not really. But glad you are so easily amused.
The pocket clips are quite stiff, so to get it out of your pocket you have to grip the knife firmly and deliberately pull it out of your pocket, the way its designed the wave won't catch until the knife point is out of your pocket so it folds out and around the outside of your pocket. It can't be deployed inside your pocket. So what if it deploys outside your pocket? You've got a firm hold of it, if you didn't want it open you close it.
With a little practice you learn to pull it forward to prevent it from opening or just close it back up if it does
Unless you are in the habit of using your folded knife to scratch your nose I don't see how it'd be an issue.
I don't think there is a faster way to deploy a knife. The way it's designed the instant it clears your pocket it's deployed, with no way to open it before it clears your pocket, it's an ingeniously simple device.

i'm not so paranoid that i feel the need to worry about shaving a tenth of a second off my knife deployment...

Interesting design with the "wave" opening, but not for me. Thanks for the post though!
