Historically, military swords have been sized to fit the fighting environment. Long swords, such as the English broad sword and Japanese katana, could only be used effectively on open fields of battle. Fighting in close or confined quarters required shorter swords, such as the sailors cutlass and the Japanese wakizashi, which is similar in size to the Hisshou. The Hisshou comes into play when the operators firearms cannot be used, as often happens in entry and search operations. It is designed for multiple carry options depending on the choice of the operator.
The Hisshous full-tang dual grind Tanto blade is YK-30 high-carbon steel, high satin finished. The long, tapered tip grind is designed for maximum slashing power combined with superior penetration. James has followed centuries of Japanese tradition in designing the classic cord-wrapped handle with ray skin underlays, which compares very well to more modern handle materials, giving excellent grip under all conditions. Includes a custom Kydex® sheath with a patented quick-release belt-mounting system. The sheath has detents which grip the knife securely and wide entry lips which allow the knife to be returned to the sheath with one hand. The belt clip can be attached with the Chicago screws provided for vertical or horizontal carry. Simply press in the injection-molded nylon retaining clip for instant attachment or release. The Hisshou demands respect, and is certainly not a sport or work knife, but it can truly be a lifesaver for the military professional. This is a knife that would have been carried by the Samurai.
