Description
CR2907: 2907 Hissatsu - Designed by James Williams
CRKT
 
James Williams, the designer of the Hissatsu™, is a former Army officer and martial arts practitioner/instructor with over 45 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 augment 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 non-reflective 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 soft textured rubber grip 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 glass filled nylon 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.

About the Designer

James Williams is a former U.S. Army officer with over 45 years of experience in numerous martial arts disciplines. 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.

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."

Pros: Finish, Overall Quality, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Not Sharp
Overall a nice blade for the money, however it is not sharpened to its full potential. The blade would barely cut hair, but two minutes with a spyderco sharpmaker and it was cutting like a straight razor.

Pros: Handle Material, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: Blade Material, None
Great design!
This knife is well designed for thrusting and slashing. The blade length and profile is perfect for quick manipulation and adroit handling. I especially like the sure, but slim grip. I would really like a smaller version with a 4.25 inch blade and a handle that was .75 inches shorter. It would be great for self-defense and urban carry. The sheath is well made for blade down or perpendicular carry.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
This knife is built like a self defense weapon should be, thick enough to not break and ground to a edge that will get the job done! Fits the sheath well doesn't fall out when shaken. Just as the video with the designer Mr Williams showed. This is one you should have in your go bag.
