CRKT Hissatsu Folder - 2903

James Williams is actively involved in teaching Military special operations and government security professionals who must at times perform their daily high-risk duties in environments which do not allow them to carry firearms or a large fixed blade knife such as the Hissatsu. At training sessions and demonstrations, they have asked James to design a folder with the defensive power of the Hissatsu that can be a concealed carry in a pocket or clipped comfortably under a jacket. The result is the CRKT Hissatsu Folder. Blade length is 3.875", which is safely under the legal limit in most jurisdictions, while the blade finish is in a non-reflective black coating.

The blade shape is a classical Samurai design which gives outstanding penetrating power as well as exceptional slashing performance. CRKT has used their premium AUS 8 stainless steel for the optimum in strength and edge-holding ability with very good stain resistance.

For rapid deployment, CRKT has incorporated their patented OutBurst assisted opening mechanism which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30°. To meet jurisdictional regulations, the OutBurst mechanism can be quickly disabled with a single setscrew.

As the blade is opened it locks automatically with CRKT's patented AutoLAWKS safety. This makes the Hissatsu Folder a virtual fixed blade, which is important in high-stress rapid-deployment situations.

CRKT has used a heavy-duty version of their stainless steel InterFrame build with beefy 0.059" 420J2 stainless steel liners, one locking, and black glass filled nylon scales, textured to provide a secure grip. A thumb disk allows rapid opening with either hand, and the custom black stainless steel clip can be quickly and easily mounted right- or left-handed with a single screw, yielding a knife that is truly ambidextrous.

Here's a tactical knife for the professional that is overbuilt to last. For those who have a need to use it, this is as much defensive security as you can find in a tactical folder.
