The hisshou's 13 inch 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. At 16.4 ounces, the hisshou also offers superior slashing ability as compared to the hissatsu. 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. The hisshou comes into play When the Operator's 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 CRKT designed custom Kydex sheath has a patented quick-release belt-mounting system for the hisshou. 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 carry. Simply press in the injection-molded nylon retaining clip for instant attachment or release.

On mine, the fit and finish is perfect. I like the mixture of old school blade and new school tactical sheath. If these types of blades appeal to you then I suggest spending that few hundred dollars. You will not be disappointed.
Please take a few minutes to look at my images. If you like them, a vote is always welcome.
Sharp out of not
Fairly durable blade
Has a nice display box (if that's your thing)
Grips made of some kind of laminated card board
Seriously is like the same stuff in cheap binders
Horrible sheath it scratch the the blade up bad
and doesn't hold it well
display bod sheds some kind of red stuff ( it's like if powder and hair had a baby this would be it)
So all in all if you are thinking of buying it as a soldier knife as It is advertise as then no but as a back yard cutter then sure go for it.
I have been to The East Coast Custom Knife Show, and I have seen some amazing and utterly beautiful knives. I am especially a fan of the Japanese style and design, and have suffered the deppresion of wanting, but not being able to afford, knives that cost 500.00-1000.00, or more--and I wanted them! And although with this knife (it is a mini sword,) you do not get something that was made custom and in limited supply, what you do get, is a knife that would easily have an 800.00 price tag at the knife show. First off, I don't know why others speak negatively of the presentation box, it is solid, beautiful, and really adds some fun, as you will spend time opening, and closing, and opening, to reveal this awesome blade. It also lends some sophistication that this knife truly deserves. And as for the sheath, it feels just like my kydex sheaths from Cold Steel, well made and form fitting. You can get a relatively firm retention when you push the blade firmly into the sheath, but I personally wouldn't feel confident to carry inverted, without some sort of snap or velcro closure around the handle portion. As far as I'm concerned, this knife is such a value, that it would be worth buying, and just invest in a custom sheath if you feel the need. Now on to the knife itself...
The handle fits my hand really well, I'd say I have medium size hands, so maybe a little small if you have very large mitts. The cord wrap is very well done, and the resin applied to it has made it tackier in the hand, which is good, as well as ensuring it won't unravel, which is great. The ray skin is real and of good quality, love the black on black. The collar at the junction of the handle and blade might be some kind of plastic or resin, it is very solid feeling, not cheap feeling at all, and looks good. The blade itself is just a thing of beauty, The polish is so nice, and really creates a perfect contrast with the satin finish on the edge portion, which is also very clean and consistent throughout the entire length. The curve of the blade makes for quick transitions when "swinging," and the weight would definitely help to make clean cuts, this is not a weapon you would want working against you for sure. Mine came hair shaving sharp, and cut through paper like butter, at any area of the edge, even right at the tip, which is itself needle sharp-while still being reinforced by the overall width of the blade. There is no guard, or "tsuba," as the intention of the designer James Williams, was to ensure there would be nothing to snag on, so the weapon would be deployed every time without incident, as this knife was made originally for US soldiers in Afghanistan. I can understand this thinking, however I wonder the likelihood a small oval guard would snag on anything, but it's a trade off. The challenge is that in combat, stress levels are high, and mistakes happen. For me personally, I would have designed at least a minimal guard, smooth with no edges to catch, because there's a real possiblity in battle that you may lose a bit of grip, and having your hand slide down this blade could end your chances in a hand to hand combat situation. But that is just my humble opinion.
So beyond the ommision of a guard, I can't find fault with this weapon, especially at this price point. The blade geometry is perfect, both the sweep as well as the spine being perfectly straight. If you are looking for a "short sword" that you can easily cut mats with, or something that you will simply look at and admire, I'd say this is easily one of the best choices out there. Thanks to James Williams for designing, and to CRKT for producing this piece.
2. Handle is not the greatest so don't expect a lot from it, it can be re-wrapped if it comes apart, don't expect it to be a short sword or Samurai sword it is what it is and takes practice to use it.
3. Sheath is excellent for the price, to increase retaining compression just add two tension screws on the top of the Sheath on both sides.
4. This blade is worth the price compared to other mass production knife companies.
