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 where carry of firearms or larger knives is impermissible. It was at their professional request that these close quarter knife designs were developed. The result of this request is the CRKT Heiho. The distinctive blade shape is classical Samurai which gives outstanding penetrating power as well as slashing performance. A stainless steel Inter- Frame build with a liner lock, polished G10 scales, ambidextrous thumb-disk opener, and stainless steel carry-clip round out the make up of this defensive folder. The Heiho makes full use of our patented OutBurst® assisted opening mechanism, and if required, can be quickly disabled easily. The Heiho also incorporates our patented LAWKS safety. This locks the blade in the fully open position making this folding knife a virtual fixed blade. The innovative and patented Veff Serrations are a welcome new addition to the Heiho. Veff Serrations superior rope, fiber, and technical cutting ability is well documented and exclusively offered by CRKT. The Heiho professional folding knife is overbuilt to last. This is arguably as much defensive security as you can find in a small, easily concealed, tactical folder.

Compact Defense Package!

I ordered this for a small defense folder for EDC since I work a night shift. I walk a mile to work and just wanted something easy to carry and deploy in a negative social encounter. With all that is going on in the world, a discreet fighting blade was the best choice. This is the forth C.R.K.T. knife I have purchased form this site, and I think my 20th purchase. It is my favorite C.R.K.T. and overall best purchase I have made here. Rapid blade deployment, razor sharp, nice serrations and point. Fit and finish a work of art. The nicest blade I own. As usual, the shipping methods suck! Shipping methods and time to get from Georgia to Florida get longer and longer over the last year or so. If it were not for the quality of the products on this site, the shipping methods would have had me looking elsewhere some time ago. I received a Christmas Card in 4 days from time sent to arrival regular mail with standard postage stamp from Georgia last month.It took 11 days forthis knife to get to me sent regular mail and I paid almost 10.00 for shipping. The same price as U.P.S. or Surepost, but I am gettng regular mail. Happy with product, highly upset with sites shipping practices.

An excellent blade

Excellent, solid blade. Came extremely sharp, and the serrations not only look great, but are built to perform. All around I think this is my absolute favorite knife for around $50.
