Let us be clear: the Hisshou™, designed by James Williams, is a specialized tool that is intended for military personnel and special forces operators. James developed this design to meet the specific requests of coalition forces overseas for a more powerful tactical tool than his CRKT Hissatsu™, which is in wide use.
Historically, military swords have been Hisshou Means "Certain Victory." Shinbu Means "Divine Valor." And Sakimori means..."Noble Defender." These are the modern embodiment of the close-quarters battle sword of the Samurai.
Veteran and current martial arts practitioner/instructor James Williams developed these fixed blade knife designs to meet user specific requests of coalition forces overseas for a more powerful tactical tool. These knives are deployed when the operator's firearms cannot be used, as often happens in entry and search operations.
These fixed blade knives are designed for multiple carry options (all come with a versatile Kydex and/or Molded PVC sheath) to suit the operator. Each knife has its own advantages of size with their full-tang dual grind, high-carbon steel Tanto blades in a high satin finish. These are high performance blades that necessitate the need to keep the blade well maintained. We recommend you keep these blades (in particular) well oiled to be ready in the field at a moment's notice.
James followed centuries of Japanese tradition in designing these classic cord-wrapped handles with ray skin underlays, which compares well to more modern handle materials, giving excellent grip under all conditions. Sheaths are custom-fitted molded PVC with their own convertible belt-mounting system. Grip detents and flaired entry lips allow the knives to be resheathed securely with one hand. A belt clip can be attached, and there is also a quick-release retaining strap.
