2903: Hissatsu Folder, Outburst Assisted, PlainEdge
Columbia River

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 in a non-reflective black 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, we have incorporated our patented OutBurst™ assisted opening mechanism which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30°. To meet jurisdictional regulations, the OutBurst mechanism can be quickly disabled with a single setscrew.

As the blade is opened it locks automatically with our patented AutoLAWKS™ safety. This makes the Hissatsu Folder a virtual fixed blade, which is important in high-stress rapid-deployment situations.

We have used a heavy-duty version of our stainless steel InterFrame build with beefy 0.059" 420J2 stainless steel liners, one locking, and black glass filled nylon scales, 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.

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.

Very nice quality knife. The locking mechinisim didn't take too long to get use to now I can open and close with no problem one handed.

This is a larger knife. It is designed for personal defense and is not suited for utility work. Do not buy this knife if you plan on cutting rope and carving sticks by the fire with it. It is meant to be kept razor sharp, lubricated and unused unless absolutely necessary. The assist mechanism is quite firm and rockets this knife open.

It's easy to write, when all you do is tell the truth. I personally do not believe you have any competition. Your attention to detail, superb staff, extraordinary products, phenomenal service, and outstanding prices ensure that. The professionalism that you all exhibit is the benchmark all others will have to try and measure up to... Perhaps not impossible, but daunting to say the least. In having you as an "aiming point," the industry will have to improve, if it wants to even approach you, and your company... The end result will be better for everyone. Please keep-up the great work.
