The Tactical Kwaiken burst onto the scene as the fastest and most anticipated Signature Series model, easily. A slim handle paired with a beautiful, upswept blade makes for a truly unique everyday carry. There will no longer be a need to go on a wild goose chase on the internet to find a Kwaiken of your very own! The Emerson tactical Kwaiken is a stunning modern interpretation of the personal concealed sidearm of the Samurai warrior, meant to be discreetly carried for extreme close and personal use. The Emerson Kwaiken is a knife any modern warrior could carry with ease and confidence.
A warrior of the Samurai class in Japan was bound by both oath and honor to never be unarmed. It was a way of life that demanded that one was never to be without his weapons so that if his lord or himself were ever attacked, he could defend himself or protect his lord with his life. The iconic Japanese sword, either Katana or Wakasashi, was the defining weapon of choice for the Samurai soldier in open battle.
The Emerson folding Kwaiken has pulled that age old design screaming into the 21st century without losing or compromising any of those Samurai ideals. The blade design is a long, trailing, single-edged dagger that is extremely fast and efficient while maintaining all of the sleek styles and look of the original Samurai Kwaiken. With the addition of a deep finger groove, Emerson has improved the tactical application and safety by upgrading the design into a tactical version any modern user could carry in any situation. With the patented Emerson wave feature, this pocket Samurai sword will still be at your beck and call 24/7 and never leave you without honor or the disadvantage of ever being unarmed.

I purchased two sets of these exceptionally priced and well made cutlery sets to give as Christmas gifts. I was very pleased with the overall quality of both the knives and the block. However, even more exceptional was the customer service provided by Bibiana when my shipment was stalled by a production slowdown. She provided super communication and kept everything on an even keel up through delivery. I couldn't ask for a better transaction.
