CRKT Hissatsu Trainer - 2907T

James Williams, the designer of the Hissatsu, is a former Army officer and martial arts practitioner/instructor with over 50 years of experience. He knows cutlery as President of Bugei Trading Company, producer of fine Samurai swords. As one who has trained tactical law enforcement and military forces for the SureFire Institute, he has developed a unique and powerful approach to unarmed combatives. His system of defensive tactics, known as The System of Tactical Strategy, has its origins in the ancient Samurai military systems as well as the Russian military art of Systema.

A key part of this system is the Hissatsu based on an old Japanese design. The unique shape of the blade, made famous by the legendary Samurai warlord Takeda Shingen, provides enormous penetrating power and superior slashing capability in one blade, which works with the natural motion of the body. James arrived at this modern version as a backup weapon for close-quarters combat. This is a focused single-purpose knife for use in anti-terrorist/close-quarters battle (CQB) environments, either as a primary or a secondary weapon to aug- ment the handgun in the hands of trained professionals.

The Hissatsu's dual grind Tanto blade is 440A stainless steel, high satin finished. For those who prefer a nonreflective finish, the Hissatsu is available with a black EDP blade or in Desert Tan dress with titanium nitride blade coating.

To aid in law enforcement and military training, a Hissatsu Trainer is now available with a blue handle and aluminum blade with a rounded trainer edge.

The handle is in a traditional Japanese pattern, but is Twin-Fused, double injection-molded with a high-impact polypropylene core, butt and hilt, and a non-slip Kraton handle surface. Oyatsubo, the emperor node on the omote (outside/ public side) of the tuska (handle), allows you to know which direction the blade is facing, even in compromised lighting conditions, by touch.

The custom injection-molded Zytel sheaths (in matching black, Desert Tan or blue) grip the knife firmly, and have removable belt clips which can be attached high or low, vertical or horizontal with the black two-piece screws provided. There are also holes and slots for carry on belts, webbing or equipment.

The Hissatsu is intended for use only by trained law enforcement and military tactical team professionals. Enormous power in a light, flat package makes for easy carry with many options for placement on tactical gear.

He knows cutlery as President of Bugei Trading Company, producer of fine Samurai swords. He is an expert in both ancient and modern martial arts and has developed The System of Strategy, a unique approach to unarmed combatives based on the ancient samurai system of close quarters combat. He is internationally known as a trainer of special operations units, government agencies, and law enforcement organizations, both foreign and domestic. James teaches combatives, self-defense, low-light tactics, and firearms. James is the designer of the Hisshou, Hissatsu Fixed Blade and Folder. He comments, that for tactical purposes, "The fixed blade is superior to the folder in every respect. Our goal with the Hissatsu Folder was not to replace the fixed blade knife, but rather to offer the best alternative possible when circumstances demand other options."
