Emerson Carves Out Spot for New Signature Series Fixed Blade

The latest addition to Emerson Knives Inc.‘s Signature Series is the Carver, a knife designed to perform meat carving roles while retaining traditional Emerson touches and embodying the Emerson style as well.

True to its name, the Carver is meant to be used in the kitchen – or possibly campsite – in meat carving tasks. To fulfill this purpose it has a 5.9 inch saber-style blade, with a generous sweep of belly and a dropped but still acute piercing tip. We’ve seen Emerson become (relatively) more experimental with blade steel in the past few years, particularly in the Signature Series; but for the Carver they returned to their standard and respect 154CM stainless. Although obviously not a folding knife, the Carver does have an Emerson Wave, playing the part of a thumb ramp here.

The ergonomic design on the Carver is a simple one: an in-line handle with a palm swell and a finger guard and pronounced butt end forming a bracket for the hand during use. Emerson is once again implementing Richlite for the scale material on the full tang Carver, and the knife comes with a buffalo leather sheath for carry or stowage.

Emerson has been showing an interest in kitchen cutlery lately. Earlier in the summer they debuted both a folding and fixed version of a steak knife, called the Carnivore. Those two knives were also part of the Signature Series, and also had the Richlite scales.

According to Emerson, the Carver will be available soon. Like all Signature Series models it will be a limited production run, although the final number of pieces has not been disclosed at this time.
