The Emerson Horseman (aka the Mini CQC-8) knife is a favorite among our staff because of its size and blade shape. It's small enough for every day carry (EDC), but big enough to be useful. The clip-point blade is just over 3.5 inches long.
The description from Mr. Emerson, which explains the name...
We all know how important a knife is when you’re working around a farm and livestock. In regard to horses, a strong sharp knife is not an option, it is essential. Every cowboy knows that his knife is his lifejacket. When something goes wrong with livestock, it goes wrong fast. A knife is generally the only thing that will get you out of a wreck with your life.
So, we did our research and found that the knife design most suited to the purpose was a scaled down version of the CQC-8, with serrations. This Mini-CQC-8 still has all of the aggressiveness of the Full Size 8 but is more pocket friendly for someone on Horseback. I think you’ll like it.
