About the Maker
Ernest Emerson started making custom knives in his garage in 1979. He rapidly rose to prominence as a knife maker due in equal parts to his expertise as a craftsman, (tool and die maker), his artists eye for design, and his practical experience as one of the world’s most sought-after and respected hand-to-hand combat instructors. Emerson’s work has been featured and exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Museum. There are only a handful of living artists who can make that claim. As an instructor in hand-to-hand combat and edged weapon skills, Mr. Emerson has taught the most elite warriors on earth, from the US Navy SEALs to the Guards of Parliament in London and everywhere in between. He is the author of scores of articles, books, and videos regarding tactics, training and combat. As one of the most sought after instructors in the world he is in high demand for seminars and lectures to civilian, military and law enforcement agencies. He is an inducted member of The Martial Arts Hall of Fame, along with such venerable names as Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. In fact he is the only knife maker known who also owns and operates his own training facility, the world-class “Black Shamrock Combat Academy Gym” in Los Angeles, California.
The demand for Ernest Emerson Custom Knives is so high that Mr. Emerson can never fill the supply with his hand made custom creations. This has created a market opportunity for other craftsmen to take Emerson factory knives and turn them into beautiful customized, modified versions of Emerson Knives. However, these are not handmade Ernest Emerson custom knives and as a result they are available at a more affordable price. Any custom or after-market modifications voids any and all stated or implied warranty by Emerson Knives. Any defects or warranty issues must be addressed by the individuals that modified the original Emerson factory knife. These Po Boy conversions and all modified versions of these knives are after-market conversions of Emerson Knives, Inc. factory production knives and that none of these modifications were performed by Ernest Emerson or Emerson Knives, Inc. Any modification to any Emerson Knife voids the Warranty!
