Description
CR2CR2907D: 2907D 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. 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."

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Made for Killing!
I bought this knife mainly for military use but have used it for skinning and butchering wild pigs and goats. The Knifecenter price is much lower than what I paid and more in line for what this knife should cost. The finish protects the knife from the weather and the blade, although designed for killing, will power through the hide of a large boar with ease and the blade will retain a sharp edge due to its grind angle. The thickness of the blade is also a plus when handling heavy chores. The sheath retails the knife well but is not a type that I would wear in a belt but maybe strapped to a MOLLE vest or body armor. I have lashed this knife to a sapling and killed wild boars in traps. Enough said!

Good Knife
The knife is full tang, with a thick cross section made for stabbing. The handle is grippy and comfortable...I was somewhat skeptical of a knife without a guard, but the Hissatsu pulls it off really well. The knife did not arrive 'razor sharp', but after sharpening was capable of shaving leg hair (a note to the wise- sharpening wears down the coating on the blade). The shape of the blade is well suited to slashing and stabbing, but would probably not stand up to prying and other utility functions. This knife is a weapon, not a field tool. The complimentary sheath is quite nice, and allows for a variety of mounting options. It took me a while to figure out which mount would be the most comfortable, but I believe I found the right one. The knife is retained in the sheath via squeeze tension on the handle, so the user must apply some force to draw the knife. While this makes for a relatively noisy draw (the sound of plastic flexing back into place), it also makes drawing the knife ultra simple- just grab n' stab, no retention straps or snaps to worry about. While this detail may seem small, it makes a world of difference if you're planning to use this knife as a secondary or tertiary weapon in close quarters. Bottom line: If you're looking for a knife that's built for hand-to-hand and has good mounting options, and don't want to pay through the nose for a 440A blade, this is the knife for you.
