The Columbia River Otanashi Noh Ken is an excellent offering from CRKT’s line targeted toward professional use.
The Otanashi noh Ken and Hissatsu knife designs were developed for exceptional penetrating ability in tactical use situations.
The clip allows deep, inconspicuous, carry and the frame lock design is for strength and simplicity in operations.
James Williams' work with worldwide military Special Operations and his extensive classical Samurai training means that this knife is designed to perform at the highest level, when you need it most. CRKT has done an exceptional job keeping the Williams design style apparent while making improvements and adding something unique to the line-up. In many ways this folder is the best yet from this line, providing excellent build quality and function in a desirable, aesthetic package.
