Like most Emerson Knives designs, the Tiger is purpose built as a fighting/self-defense knife. As is typical for production Emerson Knives, it has titanium liners with a liner locking mechanism, 154Cm blade steel, and grippy, black G10 handles.
The Tiger features an interesting, slightly upswept, clip point blade shape that places the cutting edge low in relation to the handle and the tip centered on the axis of the handle. This was an intentional design element that makes the Tiger perform well with both stabbing and slashing cuts.
