awesome knife, very sharp blade it's a little hard to open up with the torsion bar and it does kind of hurt my thumb but it can be removed and be opened even faster

I've been a fan of CRKT for years, and this beautiful knife was well worth every penny.
My last knife was the M1-13k by Greg Lightfoot, I didn't think anything
could compare to that. I was pleasantly mistaken. Williams produced a work of tactical art.
I'm going to be a customer for the rest of my life. No other manufacturer has impressed me or taken the abuse better. The Hissatsu is awesome. Like a tank and a kitana had a baby. Thank you guys, I'll be back when it's time to retire this guy. I love CRKT.

I got this as a Christmas gift a few years ago. Man what a great knife I've carried many knives over the years and this is by far the best pocket-clipped folding knife I've ever owned. It's intended for one main use--defense. But I've used it for many different applications and it always came through. It is a little bulky sitting on your side but, on the other hand, you always know it's there in case of emergency and that's why I wanted it. Opening and closing took a little practice but once you get it down, it's like art. And the sound it makes when opening is comparable to pumping a shotgun. I also love that the pocket clip can be switched to the other side. That's an important aspect for us lefties. Sadly, I lost it about a year ago and life hasn't been the same...
I recieved this knife a number of years ago as a present, and it has been on my side faithfully for almost 3 years. The outburst took a little time to get used to but eventually I had it down to second nature. Unfortunately for me, I was using it at a fire scene and the locking liner became bent and now I cannot close it unless using a pair of pliers. Overall it holds an edge fantasticly and I have no complaints other than the locking liner bent after years of use and has rendered the knife completely usless -- Anthony CRKT Response: First off Anthony, thank you for your service, we appreciate all the the hardworking fire fighters out there do.

I would consider myself as a bit of a knife collector and I have just recently started to take notice of CRKT this is the second knife I have bought from them in the last month or so and I couldn't be happier with CRKT's service and quality.
This knife just looks and feels tactical. I mean the size of the bolt alone says Bring IT. Not to mention how fast it opens with a strong secure locking sound this knife is a must have for any tactical knife fan.
nice enough knife, but its too stiff. the handle is a little large for the size of the blade, also.
I like the way it operates, except for the amount of force it takes to get it open. I am used to big knives, and have big hands, but this one started to give me callouses on my thumb trying to open it. was going to give to my Dad for Fathers Day but I think I'll just keep it because there is no way he could open it, hes 70 years old.
I've owned more tactical knives than most. Just picked one of these up...It's rocket fast opening and lock-up SOLD me on the spot This is not for the timid Enjoyed James Williams video and was educational. I am retired LE...wished these were available back in late 70's and 80's...I carried a knife ALWAYS Hope to see more of Mr. Williams and his designs in the future. Jeff-
