The knifemaking philosophy of Ernest Emerson is that his knives are weapons first and last. The Hattin (Ha-TEEN) is more of the rule than the exception.

A Persian styled blade with a nearly straight spine for thrusting and featuring Emerson’s patented “wave-like feature” it’s akin to having a 38 in your pocket. The Hattin came out as a signature series and quickly became a hit in the cutlery circles.

The Emerson Hattin is named after the Battle of Hattin, which was waged on July 4, 1187. The Battle of Hattin was a historic engagement fought by Crusader and Levantine forces against those of Sultan Salah ad-Din on the arid plains below the Horns of Hattin in modern-day Israel. The battle was a crushing defeat for the Christian armies and resulted in the loss of Jerusalem to the Ayyubid armies. The design of the Hattin is intended to echo the scimitars used by Saladin’s warriors.

Though long since sold out, other Emerson Knives (including many collectibles) are available on KnifeArt.comAmazon, eBay, and elsewhere. In fact, as of this writing, eBay has two Hattin knives listed for auction — though you’ll need a couple grand to buy one of ’em.

Jake is a LEO down Georgia-Florida way. Jake describes himself thusly: I’m a small town deputy sheriff. I’m not special forces, I’m not SWAT, I’m not metro with LAPD or a homicide detective with the NYPD. I’m basically a problem solver. Everyday I handle calls from the mundane car in the roadway, to the worst calls for service, and everything in between. What I write will be from this perspective because I have no other. I hope something I write helps you.” Jake has been a night-shifter for years, and a cop for over a decade and a half. Despite an uncanny resemblance to Peter Griffin (especially when he’s in his uniform shirt), we really like him. In fact, we count ourselves lucky to have him aboard.
