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 blade
finish is non-reflective black Teflon® coating.
The blade shape is a classical Samurai design which gives outstanding
penetrating power as well as exceptional slashing performance. We have
used our premium AUS 8 stainless steel for the optimum in strength and
edge-holding ability with very good stain resistance.
For rapid deployment, patented (1) OutBurst™ assisted opening mechanism
which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the
blade approximately 30 degrees. To meet jurisdictional regulations, the
OutBurst mechanism can be quickly disabled with a single set screw. Our
2903Q model is a conventional non-assisted opener intended for those
regions where assisted opening is out of the question.
As the blade is opened it locks automatically with our patented (2)
AutoLAWKS™ safety. This makes the Hissatsu Folder a virtual fixed blade,
which is important in high-stress rapid-deployment situations.
A heavy-duty version of our stainless steel InterFrame build with beefy
0.059” 420J2 stainless steel liners, one locking, and black Zytel®
scales, textured to provide a secure grip. A thumb disk allows rapid
opening with either hand, and the custom Teflon®-plated 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.
