Let us be clear: the Shinbu, designed by James Williams, are specialized tools intended for military personnel and special forces operators. James developed this design to meet the specific requests of coalition forces overseas for a more powerful tactical tool than his CRKT Hissatsu, which is in wide use.Historically, military swords have been sized to fit the fighting environment. Long swords, such as the English broad sword and Japanese katana, could only be used effectively on open fields of battle. Fighting in close or confined quarters required shorter swords, such as the sailors cutlass and the Japanese wakizashi, which is similar in size to the isshou.These knives come into play when the operators firearms cannot be used, as often happens in entry and search operations. They are designed for multiple carry options depending on the choice of the operator.The Shinbu 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 13.3 ounces and a 9.25 blade, the Shinbu also offers superior slashing ability as compared to the Hissatsu.James has followed centuries of Japanese tradition in designing these classic cord-wrapped handles with ray skin underlays, which compares very well to more modern handle materials, giving excellent grip under all conditions.We have designed custom-fitted Kydex sheaths with a convertible beltmounting system for the Shinbu. 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. A belt clip can be attached with the Chicago screws provided for vertical carry. There is also a quick-release retaining strap.Each of these knives comes in a custom dark lacquered wooden box for presentation and storage.The Shinbu demands respect, and are certainly not sport or work knives, but they can truly be a lifesaver for the military professional. These are knives that would have been carried by the Samurai.DimensionsOpen Overall Length: 14.75 inchesWeight: 13.3 ouncesBladeLength: 9.25 inchesThickness: 0.233 inchesMaterial: YK-30Blade-HRC: 57-59Finish: SatinGrind: FlatStyle: Modified TantoEdge: PlainHandleMaterial: Cord Wrap over Sting RayCarryCarry System: Kydex SheathFeaturesFull Tang: YesPresentation Box: Yes
