Description

The CRKT Folding Hissatsu was designed by James Williams to put the defensive power of the Hissatsu into an easily concealed design. It's modified tanto blade is taken from a classic Samurai design, providing exceptional penetrating power and slashing performance.

Features:
  • OutBurst™ assisted mechanism for lightning fast deployment.
  • AutoLAWKS™ safety provides solid, secure lockup.
  • Durable stainless steel InterFrame GFN handle for a non-slip grip.
  • The thumb disk opener and reversible pocket clip make the Folding Hissatsu a truly ambidextrous carry option.

If spring assisted knives aren't your thing, check out the Manual Folding Hissatsu.

Far too Heavy for EDC
SSSSS

12-19-2021
According to many, I own far too many EDC knives. Knives from many different manufacturers and different actions from slip joint to automatic. While I am a fan of CRKT this knife is one of their misses. While I was very intrigued with the Japanese styling and aggressive blade shape I find it has a very fatal flaw. It is so heavy and clunky that it totally fails for me as an EDC knife. While the grip is hand filling it is actually hand OVERFILLING! And the weight...over 6 ounces...makes it one of the heaviest EDC knives that I own.
This knife has resided in my knife storage case since purchased and I have never put in my carry rotation. Such a shame for such an interesting and unique looking knife.
Impressive quality and design

The fact that this is a James Williams design is what attracted my attention in the first place. I own over 40 knives and have approximately 8 that I rotate use for every day carry. This was purchased because it filled a void in my collection. The best words I can use to describe it are robust and substantial. Very well made out of quality materials. No doubt the best defensive EDC I now own. It is large and on the heavy side. Exactly what you would expect for a knife of this quality. I do wish it had a deep carry pocket clip. Of course, I knew when I ordered it did not and I am fine with that. It's a great knife I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a knife built for its intended purpose.

I have a fairly large collection of knives, but this is absolutely my favorite for EDC. It was an acquired taste, and I do understand that it's not for everyone. It took a couple of days to really master opening it, but once I did, it was impressive. It opens very fast and powerfully, due to a strong spring. It will take your thumb a little getting used to, but now I can very easily open it without any difficulty whatsoever.
It's a bit bulky, but I love the feel in my hand.
I can pull it from my pocket and open it, very quickly. Surprisingly, much faster than my automatics.
As for the blade, I love the design. I would definitely want this one for a life-threatening self-defense situation.
If you buy it and find it hard to open, don't be discouraged. It will loosen up, and your thumb will figure it out. Then it's very easy and intuitive.

It's a pretty knife but it's not the easiest thing to carry. It's large, heavy, lacks a deep carry clip, and doesn't open easily no matter how loose I make it (thought I do open it one handed). I carried it for a while but I have too many options to stick to this one. I'd strongly recommend the smaller CRKT Heiho over it's big brother here.
A decent effort

This is probably my least favorite out of the CRKT Williams designs. The thickness of the blade stock is probably this knifes best selling point. This thing flies open once you get it to engage. My biggest issue is if you grip the handle firmly the liners and the zytel scales have a tendency to pinch your fingers. That being said, as long as CRKT and James Williams are producing Osaraku style folders, I'll continue to buy one of each.

Be very careful with how close the blade comes to the end of the knife when closed. It's easy to get some thumb meat to push in the opening at the end and gig yourself. Mine did loose the detent feature and earned me 4 stitches. I did reverse the pocket clip and then was unable to ever pull the pin back out to reverse it again. It was very fast opening and wickedly sharp.
Good defensive knife

I took the spring out and it opens easier. You don't have to fight the spring's slight tension to start it to open.

Symmetrical grip to use as yawara and great for reverse grip and the point is strong and pierces denim and leather.

Autolawks into as close a fixed blade as possible.
