The Baer/Emerson CQC-45 Combat Pistol & Knife Package

What a package! It’s a perfect combination of the finest work of two true icons of their respective crafts: Les Baer, the acknowledged king of custom 1911 pistols and Ernest Emerson, a trailblazer in the design and production of custom fighting knives. Because this is the first ever joint venture between Baer and Emerson, purchasers are virtually guaranteed that the set will eventually become a highly prized collectible. Or, for those who favor function over form, there’s no better way to upgrade your carry gun/knife at the same time than with these two pieces of precision equipment from two of America’s finest.
