Made for the modern warrior.

Paying tribute to the hira-zukuri—a classical Japanese straight sword—knifemaker James Williams brings us the HZ6. Hailing from the 8th century, the original hira-zukuri style blade was first popularized in daggers and utilized as a powerful “short” sword for survival and everyday use. And just like its origin, the HZ6 is purpose-built for real life warriors, only now designed to meet the demands of the modern world.

You don’t want to mess with Sensei James Williams. A former U.S. Army officer with more than 50 years of experience in the martial arts, he developed The System of Strategy. It’s a unique approach to unarmed combat that he teaches to Special Operations units and law enforcement worldwide. When he is armed, though, you’ll find him brandishing blades he’s created, like the Hisshou® and Hissatsu™ fixed blades, the Shizuka noh Ken™, and the now-legendary Hissatsu™ folder.
