The CRKT® Hissatsu™ Folders are knives designed for politically
sensitive environments in which professionals cannot carry either
firearms or the Hissatsu™ fixed blade.
Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) is proud of the success of the Hissatsu™
Folders designed by James Williams.
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 Hissatsu™ Folder line. Both sizes incorporate our patented
OutBurst® assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you
have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. If required, the OutBurst mechanism can be
quickly disabled with a single setscrew.
Both sizes also use our stainless steel InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one
locking, and black Zytel® 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
Hissatsu™ Folder. On our larger model, blade length is 3.875”, safely under the legal limit
in most jurisdictions. The blade shape is a classical Samurai design which gives outstanding
penetrating power as well as exceptional slashing performance. Blade steel is AUS 8 stainless
steel with nonreflective black coating.
As the blade is opened it locks automatically with our patented1 AutoLAWKS™ safety.
This makes the Hissatsu Folder a virtual fixed blade instantly, which is important in high-
stress rapid-deployment situations.
Hissatsu™ 2 Folder. New this year, our smaller model has a satin-finished 3.125” blade for
easier concealed carry. It weighs only 3.6 ounces. Because some operators prefer it, we have
used our patented2 LAWKS® safety on the Hissatsu 2. 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.
These tactical folders for professionals are overbuilt to last. For those who have a need to
use them, this is as much defensive security as you can find in a tactical folder.
MSRP is for the smaller model 2900 is only $69.99, while the larger 2903 is $99.99.
