Heiho - Razor Sharp Edge
James Williams is actively involved in teaching Military special operations and government security professionals who must at times perform their daily high-risk duties in environments which do not allow them to carry firearms or a large fixed blade knife such as the Hissatsu. They asked James to design a folder with the defensive power of the Hissatsu that could be carried in a pocket or clipped under a jacket. The result is the CRKT Heiho. A martial arts word that, when written with the Japanese characters means ‘the method of the soldier’, and when written with the Chinese characters means ‘the way of peace’.
This model incorporates CRKT’s OutBurst assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. Model 2900 uses their stainless steel InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, and black G10l 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 knives that are truly ambidextrous. The satin-finished blade is easy to conceal carry. Because some operators prefer it, CRKT has used their patented LAWKS safety on the Heiho. It creates a virtual fixed blade when the LAWKS lever is actuated after the blade is opened and locked. It offers maximum penetrating power in a compact package. This tactical folder is overbuilt to last. For those who have a need to use them, this is as much defensive security as you can find in a small tactical folder.
