I have owned the CQC 7k (only difference is the blade style) for 3 months now. It deploys well, the pocket clip has held up well, it feels great in the hand, and the blade is sturdy. I have had to resharpen it as the steel isn't the hardest, but it's a solid knife, especially for the price.
I already own this knife...It's a darn good knife. It's a little heavy and it needs a sharpening once and a while but the wave feature is really cool and you get a much bigger piece of steel than you would expect on a knife of this price. I paid around $30 for the thing and I'm definitely happy with my purchase.
Anyone know what kind of washers? I assume Teflon or Nylon.

Other than that another fabulously underwhelming showing from Kershaw. I would gladly pay an extra $10 or $15 if they'd just use some quality steel.

Yeah, if it's thick and white, it's probably nylon.

@MaxwellDemonic They are Nylon washers.

Got this knife in the mail two weeks early. Nice and sharp out of the box (no blister pack), blade is nicely centered and opens smoothly. Great knife for the money. Very stout. Thanks, Massdrop.
I bought this knife at a retail establishment and like others here I found the blade to go off center easily due to cheap screws made of exceedingly soft metal. The pocket grab feature is phenomenal but not enough to keep me from going back to my rat II from ontario knives or the HK folder I got more recently.

i didn't have any of the problems with mine and have been using it daily for around 2 years, this is a $25 knife, for the money it's great, read the other comments here, seems alot of us are happy with what we got for the money.... i picked this up after going through several rat II's myself, got bored of the ratii and wanted to try something else, this knife is a bit smaller than the rat which makes it more comfortable to carry for me through out the day and again the key feature on this knife is the one handed opening, it's actually come in huge for me a few times already, time where you are trying to hold something and need to get your knife out and make a cut, believe me being in that position just a couple of times will make this knife worth the money alone, lol....

so yeah, just saying that after two years of having mine, i've had no problems with the clip bending, i've never had to touch the screws at all so i have no idea if they are soft or not, the blade is centered and flips out as it should either by hand or by the wave grip and i've never done more than just wipe the blade down before throwing it back in my pocket, so two years of use and no issues with pocket lint or binding up at all..... my experience is basically 180 different from thinktank1803 here, so i really don't know what to make of it....it seems most everyone else is happy with this knife for $25 as well...i'm just wondering if he got a lemon or something as his experience doesn't reflect mine or alot of other users here..

Thats good to hear as confusing as it is. I still think the design is magnificent but my best guess is that yours was manufactured in a different lot, possibly in the states instead of Taiwan or China (I forget which is printed on the blade). Honestly if you have used it for two years and neither the clip, thumbstud, or blade hinge itself has gone loose I would put my money on it being a higher quality material run. Honestly im a little envious, I can operate any of the knives I own one handed but this Kershaw had the best design I've seen yet. I would still be using it if mine didn't have so many issues.
I got in on the last drop, not a bad cheap knife, key word being cheap. Wave works as intended and is fairly useful but the blade is WAY off center and the pivot screw is constantly coming loose. Blade hits the edge of the frame every time I close it.
There is a tanto variant of this knife on amazon. Tanto looks so more bad ass but this style of blade is better for slicing like opening boxes. Tough call for me..
I have a few versions of the Kershaw/Emerson, this one included, and they're pretty much my only EDC anymore. The functionality of the Wave hook thingy is the best invention for pocket knives since the pocket clip. Easy one-handed open/close. Phenomenal value. The steel may not be the best quality ever, but keep your blade clean and sharp and it's perfectly workable.
i actually have this knife sitting in front of me, it's a pretty good little knife for the money, i paid around $28-30 for mine on amazon, the neat thing about this knife is the clip can be reversed and the little hook that sticks out from the thumb rise is made to catch on the edge of you pants pocket and opens the knife as you pull it out. it really only works on heavy pants such as jean or canvas work pant material, lighter clothing like shorts and summer wear will just get twisted up. not the end of the world, you just lose the neat little feature of the knife opening as you pull it out, really handy one handed operation really, it's been pretty useful when I've needed the knife quickly and had to hold a line or something else with my other hand.

for $20 i can recommend it, heck even at $55 it's not a terrible knife, i'm more than happy enough with my $30 purchase.
Could someone tell me what was the lowest price of the drop?
Just got mine and its nice enough. It did come in a small cardboard box that was pretty squished up after being shipped in a bubble wrap envelope. No big deal to me on this order, but if I was ordering it as a gift I would have been a bit disappointed with the damaged packaging.
Why bother reminding me about this drop when you don't ship to the UK?
The really funny part is that these have better F&F by miles than any of the actual Emersons i bought in the early to mid 2000s.
Great design at a very reasonable price, but I really wish the manufacturer had used a better quality steel for the blade. In my humble opinion, the increased cost would have been worth it to put this knife over the top.
Best inexpensive knife EVER.
Where is the picture of the back?

I included a picture of the back of the knife a couple of posts ago. You can see this knife on Amazon...
