"The Kandahar is the first large size military combat knife from Emerson Knives, Inc. There are several attributes that should be found in all true combat knives. The Kandahar is the razor sharpened steel embodiment of all those attributes. With a blade length of 6.0 inches, blade thickness of .160 inches, handle length of 5.60 inches and overall length of 11.90 inches, it is large enough for brute work yet just the right size and weight to wield with extreme accuracy and quickness. The handles are rhino tough Micarta bolted securely to the tang with mil-spec stainless steel socket head bolts. The knife features a deeply recessed finger guard for safety and the trademark Emerson thumb ramp over the top. Sheath is ballistic nylon with kydex insert. It is perfectly balanced for lightning quickness, devastating effectiveness, and pinpoint accuracy.
The blades are double V ground with green canvas micarta handles. This knife features an ergonomically correct and extremely safe handle design that are the trademarks of Emerson fixed blade designs. This is the first pure "military" style fixed blade from the Emerson Company. "
