Description
CR2903: 2903 Hissatsu Folder Designed by James Williams
CRKT
 
When Danger Unfolds, It Does Too.

A folding tactical knife with patented OutBurst assisted opening and AutoLAWKS safety, this knife is ready when the action heats up.

The Hissatsu Folder was designed by James Williams, of Encinitas, CA for times when a military special operations or security professional are in environments where they need to be discreet to ensure their own safety. Firing off loud firearms or carrying large blades while performing high-risk duties isn't always an option. Now there is an alternative: the Hissatsu Folder. This tactical folding knife can be concealed in a pocket or clipped comfortably under a jacket, and later be deployed for a whole lot of defensive power.

The blade shape is a classical Samurai modified tanto design that gives outstanding penetrating power as well as exceptional slashing performance. It features a premium AUS 8 stainless steel blade for optimal strength and edge-holding ability with good corrosion resistance. Meanwhile, a non-reflective black coating helps it keep a low profile during dark conditions. With a blade length of 3.875" it's safely under the legal limit in most jurisdictions, but it goes way over on performance.

Like you, the knife is ready to spring into defense mode after being opened approximately 30º with our patented OutBurstassisted opening mechanism. Then it locks automatically into the open position courtesy of our patented AutoLAWKS safety that creates a virtual fixed blade. Something good to keep in mind when you have the bad guys breathing down your neck, face or wherever they're a bit too close. To meet jurisdictional regulations, the OutBurst spring mechanism can be easily disabled with a single set screw.

The handle has a few tricks up its heavy-duty sleeve too with a beefy InterFrame build with stainless steel liners that locks on one side and black glass-reinforced nylon scales that are 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.

This is a tactical folder for the professional that's overbuilt to last a lifetime. If only the same could be said for the enemies of freedom.

Pros: None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, Sheath, Ease of Opening
Knife has issues
Generally the knife once deployed is nice, however, it does have issues. First the thumb sweep design does not always deploy in an easy manner. Second the handle does not completely protect the user from the very tip of the blade and thus the user can cut themselves reaching into the pocket to pull out their knife under certain circumstances. Both issues could probably be easily remedy by the knife maker without increasing the cost of the knife. Dear Knife Center ... if CR makes these changes I would love you to exchange mine for the improved model.

retraction
I initially gave this knife a pissy review, I have since spoken to people who have serious combat credentials and I retract my previous review . These people know what they are talking about so its a beast, spring is a bit strong but thats just me .

Good Knife
Read a lot of reviews of how sharp this knife was from the factory. Mine would not cut hair at all, however I was able to sharpen the blade to razor sharpness without much difficulty. Otherwise I like the features such as the blade shape and the assisted opening. Quality is good for the price, just don't expect Benchmade quality. You get what you pay for.
