Though Emerson Knives doesn’t have as quite as long or rich a history as most other iconic American knife makers, the California-based company is nonetheless recognized as one of the most respected outfits in today’s industry. And while it already boasts an expansive catalog of fantastic fixed blades, tools, and folders, Emerson has now revealed its first-ever automatic knife model with the all-new “Bullshark.”

Designed specifically for EDC applications, the Bullshark is comprised of 3.4” hard-anodized aluminum handles mated to a 1.9” blade made from high-end 154CM steel. Sporting a stonewashed finish, the stubby drop point has been tempered to achieve a 57-59HRC hardness. Tipping the scales at only 4oz (or 0.25 lbs), this rugged little auto measures 5.3” when deployed. Equipped with a heavy-duty deployment spring, the Bullshark also comes paired with a metal pocket clip with an embossed Emerson branding. Best of all, the 1.9” blade not only makes for an incredibly compact yet utilitarian knife but also enables it to be fully-compliant to California laws, easily making this one of the best options for a California-legal automatic. Pricing and an official release date have yet to be revealed, though, for more information, you can check out the link below.
