The ôNobel Defender" for the Military Operator.

CRKT® has just released the Sakimori™, effectively extending its Samurai sword style fixed blade designs from combat martial artist trainer James Williams. It is the smaller of the mid-sized Shinbu™ and the larger sized Hisshou® knives.

These knives were developed at the user specific requests of overseas coalition forces needing a more powerful tactical tool. The Sakimori™ is a full-tang, tanto style blade ground of high-carbon steel finished to a high satin surface. And, Williams followed centuries of Japanese tradition in designing the classic cord-wrapped handles with ray skin underlay for excellent grip under all conditions. The sheath is custom-fitted, molded PVC with its own convertible belt-mounting system. The sheath also has ôgrip" detents with flared entry lips which allows resheathing of the knife single handedly.

The Sakimori™ from CRKT® is sure to be a welcomed addition to those operators wanting a very tough, close-quarters knife—especially when circumstances prevent you from using your firearm.

The Sakimori knife manufacturer's suggested retail price is $300.00.
