The Emerson CQC-7 BW - SEAL Approved
Is there a more classic tactical knife than the Emerson CQC-7 (And the CQC 6 by relation)? The CQC 7 was the first real tactical folding knife.

The Gerber StrongArm - The Adaptible Fixed Blade
I’ve owned and abused a Gerber StrongArm for over a year now. The finish is worn, but the knife itself continues to impress me.
