CRKT Hissatsu Folding Knife Review


Columbia River Hissatsu Folding 3.875" Blade w/OutBurst Assisted Opener

Columbia River Knife & Tool is a great company to consider if you're looking for compact or folding Hissatsu knives. You'll find good quality, solid craftsmanship, and nothing to complain about.

This particular Hissatsu knife is called the Hissatsu Folder, and was designed by none other than James Williams, president of Bugei Trading Company. His specialties in martial arts give this folding knife a traditional Japanese flavor, even though it's very modern-looking at the same time.

The CRKT Hissatsu is one of the best fighting knives made especially for combat I have ever seen and the folder does not disappoint ether! CRKT and James Williams really have themselves a winner here. This folder is one of the beefiest folders I have used. The bolt of the Hissatsu folder is very large and can take a remarkable amount of strain for a folding knife. The next thing that really blew me away was the locking mechanism which is not a thin piece of steel for a liner lock it’s a round, what looks like rolled steel rod and when this rod snaps into place your really feel that your blade is not going anywhere!

The design of the knife is very subdued and classy looking without any weird groves or notches.The only notches on the entire handle is for the clip and thumb stud. The scales on this knife are something I really like, not over done, but just the right texturing to allow for great grip and plain enough to keep a classy sleek design which looks like something a man in a suit would carry. The inside of the knife has steel liners behind the zytel scales for added strength and when it comes to strength, the Hissatsu folder is reinforced with two locking mechanisms, a liner lock and a sliding lock that secures the liner lock from disengaging which really gives you a sense of security and assurance that when you need to do heavy work with this knife it’s not going to snap back and bite you!


The blade is 3.875 inches long and is made from super-strong AUS 8 stainless steel. It's coated with a black titanium nitride finish to make it even more resilient to the elements.


The Hissatsu's handle is equally strong, since it's made from blackened Zytel. Plus it also carries a couple of handy features like the Outburst Assisted Opening system and the Liner Lock mechanism.


The knife also comes with a locking belt clip that attaches to either the right or left side of the handle, whatever your preference.

While it might not be as affordable as some, we think it's worth every penny. You get what you pay for and, in this case, you get the quality of CRKT in a package made with premium materials.
