A large folding tactical knife with our manual locking liner safety innovation, it’s specifically designed for one reason: to say sayonara to any evil that comes your way in close quarter battle environments.
The Otanashi noh Ken is designed by the venerable James Williams of Encinitas, CA. A veteran and martial arts practitioner/instructor, he knows cutlery—especially the tactical variety. In fact, his knife designs have quickly become mainstays within the military Special Forces and tactical Law Enforcement communities across the globe. So when SOCOM needed a larger, thinner, folding combat knife that was easy to carry and conceal, Williams answered the call.
Longer than the Hissatsu Folder, yet slimmer to carry than the popular Heiho knife, the Otanashi noh Ken gives you exceptional concealment options and superior blade penetrating ability. Featuring an Osoraku style blade, made famous by the 16th century Samurai warlord Takeda Shingen, it’s efficient and effective. Add to that the non-reflective finish on the blade for better concealment and the enemies of freedom will never see it coming.
