I picked up a Kershaw with the Emerson wave. It was not great out of the box. The pivot was tight and gritty, the centering was so bad the blade rubbed on the frame, the sub frame lock barely engaged, the jimping was rounded and useless, the blade had a too much upsweep and an unnecessary harpoon swedge, and finally, the scales had a gross reddish purple hue.
After a bit of work on it, I can finally call it a half respectable knife. It's earned its spot in the rotation.

Yeah, the pocket snag blade deploy thingy. Got it .It's not my favorite, but with the Emerson wave, you almost never use it.
