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™. They asked James to design a folder with the defensive power of the Hissatsu that could be carried in a pocket or clipped under a jacket. The result is the CRKT Hissatsu™ Folder line. Models incorporate our OutBurst® assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. If required, the OutBurst mechanism can be quickly disabled with a single setscrew. The folders also use our stainless steel InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, and black Zytel® scales, textured to provide a secure grip. A thumb disk allows rapid opening with either hand, and the custom Teflon®-plated stainless steel clip can be quickly and easily mounted right- or left-handed with a single screw, yielding knives that are truly ambidextrous. Hissatsu™ 2 Folder. New this year, our smaller model has a satin-finished 3.125″ blade for easier concealed carry. It weighs only 3.6 ounces. Because some operators prefer it, we have used our patented* LAWKS® safety on the Hissatsu 2. It creates a virtual fixed blade when the LAWKS lever is actuated after the blade is opened and locked. It offers maximum penetrating power in a compact package. These tactical folders for professionals are overbuilt to last. For those who have a need to use them, this is as much defensive security as you can find in a small tactical folder. * U.S. Patent No. 5,596,808
