It's true that knives are designed to cut things, and do nothing else.
However, some knives are made with the idea in mind that occasionally, depending on your circumstances or occupation, you might have to ask more of your knife than just cutting.
Many of us in law enforcement or military have had to use our knives for some pretty radical tasks on occasion, and we're glad when we have one that will not only survive, but excel at these tasks. Digging, prying, hammering...that's not what knives were designed for originally, but at times, we have no choice.
By the way, I'm not an Emerson representative....
