If you'll be in New York November 7, 8 or 9 and can close a No. 3 or No. 4 Captains of Crush gripper, here's your chance to win a world-famous Emerson tactical knife.
The Emerson Knife Challenge began a few years ago with a straightforward challenge: Close a really tough gripper and win a really tough knife. Emerson Knife sales manager Derek Russell said that thousands of people have tried since the challenge began, but so far, only one man, John Hicks, has succeeded, although Richard Sorin came close but couldn't quite put it away a couple of years ago. So if you will be in the Big Apple and can mash a No. 3 or No. 4 Captains of Crush gripper, swing by New York's Hotel Pennsylvania (401 - 7th Avenue, at 33rd Street) November 7-9 and bring home "the number one hard use knife in the world."
