The CRKT Hissatsu Knife is a fixed-blade design that incorporates a traditional Japanese design, made famous by the legendary Samurai warlord Takeda Shingen, that provides enormous power and superior mobility in a single blade which works with the natural motion of the body. The CRKT Hissatsu Fixed Knife is meant as a CQB backup. This is a focused single-purpose knife for use in anti-terrorist environments, either as a primary or a secondary tool to augment the handgun in the hands of trained professionals.
The CRKT Hissatsu Knife features a dual grind Tanto blade made of 440A stainless steel. 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. The traditional elements are functional: "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 CRKT Hissatsu Tactical Knife includes a custom injection-molded glass filled nylon sheath that grips the knife firmly, and has a removable belt clip 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 Columbia River Hissatsu Knife offers enormous power in a light, flat package makes for easy carry with many options for placement on tactical gear.
