This tactical fixed blade is built much like its designer James Williams—tough. A beefy G10 handle provides superior grip in close quarter battle environments. The modified tanto blade allows for maximum penetration and slashing cuts against enemies. Finally, a sheath with a molle-compatible gear clip puts your knife at-the-ready for any surprises that may come your way.

Yukanto™ designer James Williams of Encinitas, California, is a veteran who has trained, competed in and taught several different martial arts disciplines. He also teaches close quarter combat to police and military, foreign and domestic. His knives have been a staple for military Special Forces and Tactical Law enforcement communities around the world for years. Williams designed the Yukanto™ at the request of military Special Operators, knowing that it would see more than its share of close-quarter combat situations.
The Yukanto™ features a clip-blade crafted in the Osaraku style made famous by the 16th century Samurai warlord, Takeda Shingen. Compact in size, it still comes up big on cutting abilities when called upon for duty. It’s no wonder the name translates to “Sword of Valor”.
When you need a more compact fighting tool for maximum penetration, the Yukanto™ is ready to serve and protect you.
You don’t want to mess with Sensei James Williams. Trust us. 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.
