The Shizuka noh Ken folder is a follow-up to the popular James Williams designed Otanashi noh Ken knife from CRKT. Its name translates to "hidden blade", which summarizes its intended role of providing the user with an even more compact tactical knife that can easily be carried inconspicuously in everyday fashion and as a complement to your personal defense tools.

Like its larger sibling, the Shizuka noh Ken knife has an Osoraku style blade, made famous by the 16th century Samurai warlord Takeda Shingen. In the closed position, the blade fits cleanly in the slim handle, ready to be deployed using the thumb disk. A black G-10 slab handle with a stainless steel frame lock provide both strength and grip. Working in tandem with the frame lock is a manual LAWKS safety that ensures virtual fixed blade safety and performance with the slide of the lever. The final piece, rounding out an impressive folding knife, is the discrete deep carry pocket clip.

James Williams' work with worldwide military Special Operations and his extensive classical Samurai training means that this knife is designed to perform at the highest level, when you need it most.

The Ideal Modern, Urban EDC Tactical Folder at a Fair Price
Greg E.
I saw this knife and had to have it. It looks like something a ninja cyborg assassin would have in an anime movie. I've EDCed a number of tactical knives similar to this and I just keep falling more and more in love with it. It's tiny and incredibly lightweight for how large and sturdy it is open. At 3.75" (really about 3.5" of cutting edge) it's small enough to carry in many urban areas. It feels rock solid even without the secondary lock (don't forget to practice engaging it). One of the least visible knives to carry in the pocket I've owned. Great for people who wear tighter or more delicate clothing, or don't like a big, heavy, thick folding knife in their pocket. The pivot is offset to make it easy to flick open. If I had to find something to complain about it would be that the choil could be a little deeper and a wave feature would have been nice.
