2900 description
James Williams is actively involved in teaching Military special operations and government security professionals who must at times perform their daily high-risk duties in environments which do not allow them to carry firearms or a large fixed blade knife such as the Hissatsu. They asked James to design a folder with the defensive power of the Hissatsu that could be carried in a pocket or clipped under a jacket.

The result is the CRKT Heiho. This model incorporates our OutBurst® assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees.

Model 2900 uses our stainless steel InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, and black G10l® scales, textured to provide a secure grip. A thumb disk allows rapid opening with either hand, and the custom stainless steel clip can be quickly and easily mounted right- or left-handed with a single screw, yielding knives that are truly ambidextrous.

The satin-finished 3.125" blade is easy to conceal carry. It weighs only 3.6 ounces. Because some operators prefer it, we have used our patented* LAWKS® safety on the Heiho. It creates a virtual fixed blade when the LAWKS lever is actuated after the blade is opened and locked. It offers maximum penetrating power in a compact package.

This tactical folder is overbuilt to last. For those who have a need to use them, this is as much defensive security as you can find in a small tactical folder. * U.S. Patent No. 5,596,808

I recently bought 3 crkt blades having never owned one before. As an industrial designer I'm extremely impressed with crkt's products, this one especially. Definitely my favorite of the 3 I bought. The blade deployed really fast but it wasn't until I took a good look at the blade that I realized that I was going to leave with it. The knife has such a unique shape and is made very well. I would buy this again without question.

Bought this knife for one purpose and one purpose only. For the penetration. Although one day an accident occurred, in which i dropped the knife on my soft wood floor and a 1/4 inch of the tip broke off. Since this was a "misuse" it was not under warranty and not being a blade expert i could not repair it myself. So now i am stuck with a sharp knife with no tip.

Love the look and feel of this knife. Very original. I did have a problem with the thumb disk being so close to the frame, made it difficult to deploy and put my thumb in harm's way when I was able to deploy it. I filed down the disk at an angle and now it's much easier to deploy. Other than that this knife is a beauty.

This is the first CRKT knife I have purchased and owned and I am very satisfied with it. It's a high quality, durable blade. The knife has a nice look and feel to it and it's quick to open and easily concealable. I would recommend this to anybody.

I purchased this knife for a duty knife that could be concealed in my boot. I was worried about it being flimsy. I am more than satisfied with the knife. It's well made and sturdy. The blade length is concealable but very effective when needed. I will recommend this as a concealable knife to the other members of my team.

This is my first "real" knife. By real I mean something more then $25 and having some quality to it. I used to love the tanto style blade until I saw the blade on this. I fell in love with this design and knew this would be the first real knife I'd buy. I've had it for several days now, and I must say that opening it seemed a bit difficult at first. But I found it all comes down to how you move your thumb, which is more of a thumbs-up using the edge of your nail. The G10 handles are nice and polished but also have a bit of a satin feel at the same time. There is no play at all in any direction of the blade when locked. It has a very solid feel to the knife. I'd buy this knife again if I didn't already own one. I'd love to see a small fixed blade knife with this design of blade handle.

Hi, I have purchased a Heiho, and it is very very fine, elegant and sharp blade is incredible, but sometimes I have so little concern to blade open it accidentaly inside mi pants bag, can I use the LAWKS to prevent it? Thanks from Mexico
