2901 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 where carry of firearms or larger knives is impermissible. It was at their professional request that these close quarter combat knife designs were developed.

The result of this request is the CRKT Heiho. The distinctive blade shape is classical Samurai which gives outstanding penetrating power as well as slashing performance. A stainless steel Inter- Frame build with a liner lock, polished G10 scales, ambidextrous thumb-disk opener, and stainless steel carry-clip round out the make up of this defensive folder.

The Heiho makes full use of our patented OutBurst® assisted opening mechanism, and if required, can be quickly disabled easily.This knife also features our automated liner safety innovation which automatically sets a pin between the locking liner and the frame. This pin acts as an additional layer of safety, so the locking liner is less likely to disengage during use. To close the knife, pull the red button lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position. The innovative and patented Veff Serrations are a welcome new addition to the Heiho. Veff Serrations superior rope, fiber, and technical cutting ability is well documented and exclusively offered by CRKT.

The Heiho™ professional folding knife is overbuilt to last. This is arguably as much defensive security as you can find in a small, easily concealed, tactical folder.

Absolutely love this knife. Tried it out on a tool truck by operating it one handed behind my back. Worked well first try. Misplaced it and immediately bought another. The only detriment I have is the pocket clip broke, but I don't consider it a big deal. Perhaps it can be beefed up to withstand what an old mechanic can put it through. All around perfect otherwise CRKT RESPONSE: Thank you for the review! Please know we have a free parts request page on our site.

The Heiho knife with Veff serrations has become my go-to EDC knife. Well-balanced and very, very sharp out of the box, it feels great in the hand. There's an X-Factor in the feel of a knife that I don't fully understand, and this knife has it. The opening mechanism is easy and smooth, and when the knife is closed, it feels securely closed. I don't worry about it opening in my pocket. I've only had it for a few weeks, so it's too early to talk about how well it holds an edge, but I have high expectations. Bravo, CRKT and James Williams

Just got this knife for xmas and it's brilliant It is perfectly balanced, beautifully made and extremely sharp. James Williams and CRKT really know what they are doing. This knife is a great size for daily carrying or as a wonderful addition to a pocket knife collection. Can't wait to put this to good use.

The Heiho by James Williams is: 1) well made, 2) excellent materials, 3) extremely sharp, and 4) very fast to open. The handle fits will in the hand (and I have large hands)and is very nimble in use. The hardened steel is useful in this type of nice - but you'll have to put some extra time into sharpening it. If I keep it honed - after each use - and don't cut stuff that it's not designed to cut - it should last me a LONG time. Excellent EDC tool..

My favorite folder I bought this knife mainly because of all the controversy, it seems to have a lot of lovers and haters, upon receiving it I was amazed Wow this knife was sharp and easy to open, sadly I have butter-knifed mine. I went to cut a piece of that paper twine and it had some steel wire in the middle:(. Can't seem to get it back sharp again, saved up for two months to get this bad boy, now it's a paper weight. Wonderful tactical blade

Just like the other reviewers, I love this knife- a true beauty in appearance and smooth function. The next CRKT model that will go into my collection is the Veff serrated "Fossil". You guys make real art that performs exceptionally well. Thank you Dave

I love the way this knife looks, the g10 is beautiful and the serrations are just plain sick. They work great for rope or small shavings of wood. The speed-assist is really fast, but the thumb stud kinda hurts your thumb when you flick it open because the blade is closed so tightly, but that's negligible. The one huge problem I have is that only the serrated part of the blade was hardened. The plain edge part of it was physically unsharpenable, and any remote edge I could get on it was removed by running the blade on a piece of paper. The serrations were perfect and razor sharp, but the plain edge was not. CRKT Respons: please contact our customer service department. Your knife should be sharp out of the box. We would be happy to take a look at your knife and replace it if the edge is not sharp.
