I purchased this knife in 2008 at BAF, Afghanistan for use during my deployment. It was purchased with the sole purpose for use if I ended up in a hand to hand engagement, rolling around the ground, when a firearm would be difficult to deploy. This is rarely seen during a firefight, but it has been known to happen if prisoners are taken, and since I was a medic I would always interact and treat those prisoners. For this type of use the knife is perfect. It has a singular purpose in its design, and that is to make fatal puncture wounds while still being highly effective in a slash. For any other use it is subpar, and there are plenty of other knifes that would serve you better in bush craft or daily carry. But if you want a knife that will quickly put someone down, then this is the one.

Bought this knife here in Bagram Air Field Afghanistan, and from what I can see and feel it is a wonderful knife designed for the military and the purpose in which it might be used, self defense. Love it so far, don't think it will ever leave my riggers belt.
Excellent knife. It is extremely sharp and also hides well under a jacket. I rate this as one of the best knifes that I own.
Excellent knife Carries nice and flat under my jacket. While its obviously a fighting knife, I've found it suitable for more mundane tasks as well.
just received my hissatsu today. I must say, what an amazing knife, its the perfect size in my opinion. Again my hats off to James and CRKT. My only wish is that it had the same handle as Hisshou. Then it would be the perfect knife.
I bought 2 of these knives. One for my son in Alaska so he would have some sort of self defense tool while he is wandering the wilderness areas. The other for me that I intend to hog hunt with. I feel it is certainly up to the task as I think the sharp edge and sharp point with its light weight will work great.

On handling the weapon the impression is of a knife capable of performance much greater than its size and weight would imply.
I just purchased this knife at a gun and knife show. The picture of the knife does not do it justice. It is a very good quality knife including the sheath. I was surprised at how thick the blade is. The only thing I question is the blade steel, 440A. I also have the folding version and that blade is AUS8 which contains vanadium, 440A does not. It also contains less carbon then AUS8. I think that AUS8 or even better, VG10 would have been better choices.

I own several of these. They carry well, secure in their sheath securely yet are quickly accessible. An excellent tool.
