Emerson Commander closed
Seen here is an older Emerson Waveless Commander. The Wave is that hook on the blade that catches the pocket as patented by Ernest Emerson. This enables the user to whip the folder blade open faster than an automatic once you get the hang of it. This ole gal here had seen better days when it arrived here. The original liner lock was worn terribly and the life was effectively used up out of that one I'm afraid. Even I would have been hard pressed to simply repair it as it came from the factory. But with this conversion and a new lock side in chunky titanium it breathed new life back into this one. It should be good to go for another 30 years or more now.
