Description
CR2907K: 2907K 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."

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Blade Material, Finish
Cheap Chinese Crap
Yes it could stab you, but so could a $4 screwdriver. I collect many knives & I thought that it was not that well made. Personally I would prefer a US made dagger by Gerber like the Appelgate/Fairbairn series. $30 bucks more, 100% better.

Cons:
good knife that stays true to tradition
I see a lot of reviews where people complain that there's no finger guard on this knife. This knife was made to replicate the traditional Japanese blade. The Japanese have battled with blades for thousands of years. If the finger guard was really necessary I think they would have added it by now. The handle flairs out towards the front, and the handle is fairly grippy so I doubt your hand will slip. My only complaint is that the blade steel could have been better. At least 440C.

Pros: Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Not Sharp out of the box
I bought this thinking it would be a good EDC fixed blade for self defense as I tend to like larger knives. I was very disappointed when it arrived it was dull and needed to be sharpened before I could consider it good enough to be carried. This has been my experiance with another CRKT knife I have. All seem to need a good edge put on them out of the box. They promote this as a self defense piece it shouldn't need anything out of the box. I doubt I'll buy anything CRKT made again. If your looking for a good EDC defensive knife check out the ZT Shifter instead. I will say this was my first order from Knife Center and I will definately be ordering from them again. Fast shipping and great prices.
