The Commander Remains One of Emerson’s Top Sellers

The Emerson Knives Commander has been out for a while now. It was well received, not surprisingly, and remains one of their most popular models (also not surprisingly). Reviews of the Commander are extremely positive and extremely consistent, even after filtering out a large number of ardent fans and impossible-to-be-impartial Emerson Loyalists.

Grunts: gratuitous.

We recently received word that the Commander had been out doing some modeling in Death Valley, and that there was some badass new imagery available. Knowing the timbre of our readers’ preferences, we thought it only appropriate to share.

You’re welcome.
