CR2903: 2903 Hissatsu Folder Designed by James Williams
When Danger Unfolds, It Does Too.

A folding tactical knife with patented OutBurst assisted opening and AutoLAWKS safety, this knife is ready when the action heats up.

The Hissatsu Folder was designed by James Williams, of Encinitas, CA for times when a military special operations or security professional are in environments where they need to be discreet to ensure their own safety. Firing off loud firearms or carrying large blades while performing high-risk duties isn't always an option. Now there is an alternative: the Hissatsu Folder. This tactical folding knife can be concealed in a pocket or clipped comfortably under a jacket, and later be deployed for a whole lot of defensive power.

The blade shape is a classical Samurai modified tanto design that gives outstanding penetrating power as well as exceptional slashing performance. It features a premium AUS 8 stainless steel blade for optimal strength and edge-holding ability with good corrosion resistance. Meanwhile, a non-reflective black coating helps it keep a low profile during dark conditions. With a blade length of 3.875" it's safely under the legal limit in most jurisdictions, but it goes way over on performance.

Like you, the knife is ready to spring into defense mode after being opened approximately 30º with our patented OutBurstassisted opening mechanism. Then it locks automatically into the open position courtesy of our patented AutoLAWKS safety that creates a virtual fixed blade. Something good to keep in mind when you have the bad guys breathing down your neck, face or wherever they're a bit too close. To meet jurisdictional regulations, the OutBurst spring mechanism can be easily disabled with a single set screw.

The handle has a few tricks up its heavy-duty sleeve too with a beefy InterFrame build with stainless steel liners that locks on one side and black glass-reinforced nylon scales that are 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.

This is a tactical folder for the professional that's overbuilt to last a lifetime. If only the same could be said for the enemies of freedom.

Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Ease of Opening, None
I initially gave this knife a pissy review, I have since spoken to people who have serious combat credentials and I retract my previous review . These people know what they are talking about so its a beast, spring is a bit strong but thats just me .

Pros: Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening
Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Good Knife
Read a lot of reviews of how sharp this knife was from the factory. Mine would not cut hair at all, however I was able to sharpen the blade to razor sharpness without much difficulty. Otherwise I like the features such as the blade shape and the assisted opening. Quality is good for the price, just don't expect Benchmade quality. You get what you pay for.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Cons: None
Good blade
I bought this knife to carry during early morning jogs and overall protection. While I haven't stabbed any car doors, thrown it at trees or attacked cardboard cut outs of bad guys with it, the knife seems sturdy and well built. It's almost overbuilt, and that's a good thing in my opinion. There seems to be enough heft and handle length that you could probably use the end of the handle as a striker as well. The knife arrived a couple of days earlier than I expected. As always, KnifeCenter's service was top notch.
