Knifemaker James Williams’ longstanding history and knowledge of hand-to-hand combat sets the bar for his tactical knife creations—and the CRKT Inazuma No Ken™ is no exception to the rule. Inspired by the Otanashi noh Ken™ and the Hissatsu™ Folder, James brings us another Japanese-inspired knife with a name that translates to “lightning sword.” Merging three remarkable innovations—Ken Onion’s Assisted Opening and Flavio Ikoma’s IKBS™ Ball Bearing Pivot System and Deadbolt® lock—stand back as it quickly and smoothly deploys, locking into place to withstand even the toughest jobs. You’ll see soon enough how it’s rightfully earned its namesake.

What happens when you take traditional, classical weaponry and use modern day technology to improve it tenfold? You won’t have to wonder much longer, because knife designer James Williams has done exactly that with the Inazuma No Ken™. With a name that translates to “lightning sword”, the combat-inspired folding knife is a true force not to be reckoned with. Drawn from the influence of a classical Japanese sword, this modern carry honors the tried-and-true ways of traditional combat while impressively designed to withstand the nature of today’s battlefield.

Featuring Ken Onion’s award-winning Assisted Opening, the tough D2 steel snaps open at super high speed—and since it’s enhanced with IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system, the blade deploys lightning fast with a smooth rotation. Ready to accommodate both left or right handed holds, the G10 handle’s textured surface adds another element of control so your grip doesn’t fail you no matter the weather conditions you’re venturing into. Topping it all off, the Inazuma No Ken™ features a super strong locking mechanism thanks to Deadbolt® innovation, delivering even more powerful precision whenever it’s time to slash or cut through a surface.

When it’s time to stow away, the Otanashi noh Ken™ can be clipped to your belt, making it one of our go-to companions. With grip and blade strength that won’t fail you, the Otanashi noh Ken™ is your personal bolt of lightning.
