    Here's a tactical knife for the professional that is overbuilt to last. For those who have a need to use it, this is as much defensive security as you can find in a tactical folder.
    The blade shape is a classical Samurai design which gives outstanding penetrating power as well as exceptional slashing performance. We have used our premium AUS 8 stainless steel for the optimum in strength and edge-holding ability with very good stain resistance.

    For rapid deployment, OutBurst assisted opening mechanism instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. To meet jurisdictional regulations, the OutBurst mechanism can be quickly disabled with a single setscrew.

    As the blade is opened it locks automatically with CRKT's AutoLAWKS safety. This makes the Hissatsu Folder a virtual fixed blade, which is important in high-stress rapid-deployment situations.

    Other features include a heavy-duty version of CRKT's stainless steel InterFrame built with beefy 0.059" 420J2 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 Teflon-plated stainless steel clip can be quickly and easily mounted right- or left-handed with a single screw, yielding a knife that is truly ambidextrous. 3 7/8 in. blade, 8 3/4 in. overall.

    How are Spring Assist different from a Gravity Knife or Switchblade Knife?

    Gravity or Switch Blade knives feature a button, level, or other type of switch that releases a spring pressure to automatically open the blade. On a Spring Assist knife, there is no separate button or switch. Instead, you apply pressure to part of the blade to begin the opening process. This is usually a small bump of metal which sticks out under the knife, making it fast and comfortable to use. Once you press on that part of the blade, it automatically opens and locks into place. Since the action of opening the knife is started by pressing the blade metal, instead of a button or switch, it is considered to bypass the laws which ban Switch Blade knives.

    All I can say is wow. This knife is really nice. I had a hard time at first opening it, but after a while got it down. I'm going to assume they're all like that considering most reviews i found elsewhere have stated as such.

    As someone that studied the martial arts, I have to say the blade design is nice, obviously meant for penetration. You can hold it in just about any grip style you choose. Definitely for self defense purposes, granted you could use it for EDC. The blade locks very securely too since it has a dual locking mechanism, preventing the blade from closing on your fingers.

    It's a decidedly tip up design with a reversible pocket clip. I haven't tested the sharpness, but I can safely gauge that it comes sharp enough. The weight is fairly decent on it, the balance can be found in the handle. The weight distribution to me at least reminds of a full tang blade.

    The indention where the thumb disk is make for a nice secure grip in the hands. Overall a very nice knife and worth every penny. I also suggest buying the Kershaw Tension and Speed assist tool if you want to go right to work on removing the outburst spring from the knife, after all everyone has their preference, and having the tool is nice for your other auto assisted knives.
