This is a one-purpose blade with great slashing ability and exceptional penetration. Do not expect to be able to convince a judge or prosecutor that you were carrying this knife for hunting and skinning or for cutting carpet. It is a professional's knife for police or military.
The 7-1/8" 440A blade at 55-57 Rc. is intended for toughness more than extreme edge holding. It is now available with a high satin finish or for those who prefer a non-reflective finish, a black EDP finish or in Desert Tan dress w/Titanium nitride blade coating. It will take a very fine edge and will hold it for a reasonable time. The double molded handle has a super-tough polypropylene core, butt and hilt with the handle surface being Kraton® for a super grip. The Kydex® sheath has holes and slots that make it possible to use in many ways. Measures 12" overall and weighs 8.1 oz (11.7 oz. with sheath.) Made in China.
To aid in law enforcement and military training, a Hissatsu Trainer is available with a blue handle and aluminum blade with a rounded trainer edge. (not shown)
