View Full Version : EDC-2 Emerson Multitasker is out
02-05-2014, 1:11 PM
Through Emerson's email subscription, I got the notice that they are now selling it. I have the EDC-1 and I love it. For those that have the EDC-1, what are your thoughts on EDC-2?

I love Emerson knives and have many (by the way, I'm selling this one... http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/1090187-CQC-10-Passion-UPDATE! )
However, their EDC tools just don't make much sense to me....if I'm going to carry a multitool I think it should have pliers. Plus, having the wave on the blade is dumb because what if I want to use some of the other tools on it? I'll have to fold the knife back in every time I pull it out of my pocket. Kinda stupid. I'm also a bit disappointed that Emerson decided to produce that thing overseas (Taiwan I believe) instead of here in the USA like all their knives.

I'm not familiar with Emerson knives (products), they seem a bit expensive for what is offered.
I keep a Gerber Suspension in my lunchbox (basically a EDC kit). The Gerber fits my needs at this time.
Looks like a nice piece that's well made but what is so special about it other than being an Emerson? What can it do that a normal Swiss army knife can do? It has G10 handles, a clip, a blade, 2 sizes of slotted screwdriver and a punch/awl.
I don't own the EDC-1 or any Emerson for that matter, but I do appreciate well made knives and multitools.
For the price, I could buy a basic Swiss Army knife (http://www.amazon.com/Victorinox-Swiss-Super-Tinker-Pocket/dp/B000MLU8PE/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1391759081&sr=8-4&keywords=swiss+army+knife) that has many more tools AND a Leatherman (http://www.amazon.com/Leatherman-830039-Multitool-Leather-Combination/dp/B0002H49BC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1391759410&sr=8-1&keywords=leatherman+wave) and still come out ahead money wise.
Not trying to bash on you or Emerson, but I don't see the value.

I'd stick to the knives. Most times that I need a multitool I need pliers. I'd also rather have a dedicated knife.
