Designed by James Williams, the Hissatsu is an overbuilt folder that has plenty of defensive power, yet is small enough to carry in a pocket or clip comfortably within a jacket. The Hissatsu's blade length is 3.875", which is safely under the legal limit in most jurisdictions. The blade shape is a classical Samurai design which gives outstanding penetrating power as well as exceptional slashing performance. Premium AUS 8 stainless steel provides amazing strength and edge-holding ability with excellent stain resistance. The blade's finish is a non-reflective black coating for added stealth. Weighs only 5.8 oz. Overall length: 8.75".
For rapid deployment, the Hissatsu uses the 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 its 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.
