New for 2015, the CRKT 2926 Shizuka Noh Ken Frame Lock by James WIlliams!
The CRKT 2926 Shizuka Noh Ken designed by James Williams is a compact version of his Otanashi Noh Ken. This is simply a more compact,low profile, and easy-to-carry version of a proven design from Williams. Translating to "hidden blade", the Shizuka Noh Ken is a modified tanto, called an Osaraku, which excels at both slashing cuts and deep penetration. The knife comes with the manual LAWKS safety, which sets a pin against the frame lock, creating a virtual fixed blade when deployed. The LAWKS system provides a structural integrity that is safer and more reliable than the frame lock alone would under extreme use. The G10 handle provides unmatched grip and the stainless clip allows for deep, inconspicuous carry.
