This snappy collaboration between Emerson and Protech Knives is lightweight, tactical, intimidating and just plain cool. Its strong black aluminum handle is laser engraved with a Punisher logo while the familiar "B" tanto chisel blade is two-toned and flies out the side via an automatic push-button opening system.
The Blade: Classic Emerson chisel ground tanto blade has a plain straight razor sharp cutting edge and Emerson Knives logo. The killer finish on this one is two fold. The grinds, including the entire flat chisel side and spine, have a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating while the flat on the front has a clean satin finish. It has all the look and feel of the classic Emerson with a sick finish you'll only find with Protech. Traditional easy-field-sharpening 154CM American Made steel is present on the Punisher with an elevated, notched thumb ramp reminiscent of the Wave. It deploys in a flash with a simple press of the satin button opener located just below the pivot screw on the show side of the handle. That button also locks the blade in place when in use. To close, simply press in the button again and fold the blade back into the handle.
The Handle: 6061-T6 aluminum is aircraft grade for superior strength to weight ratio. These are thick slabs with a strength-increasing black anodized finish smoothed out and fashioned in the classic CQC-7 grip. Protech added extensive notching on the spine to sort of extend the thumb ramp off the blade for more controlled cutting. This baby includes an Emerson-styled long black pocket clip on the back for right hand tip up carry and a Schmuckatelli Co. skull bead lanyard.
