EDC For CCW: CRKT Otanashi Noh Ken Tactical Folder

Otanashi noh Ken, courtesy CRKTIf a general-purpose cutting/chopping/wire stripping knife just isn’t your EDC cup of tea, Columbia River Knife And Tool’s Otanashi Noh Ken tactical folder might be the tool for the job. It’s got a deep pocket clip and a 4.5″ clip point blade of thick AUS8 stainless, designed to punch through just about anything.

    Clip point? The back edge is beveled but that doesn’t look like any clip point I’ve ever seen.

      Technically it’s the upswept tip that makes it a clip point, IIRC. It sure doesn’t look like the clip point on my Old Timer, that’s for sure.

  2. avatar William Burke says:

    That is NOT a clip point. No way. While CRKT’s quality has improved in recent years, that design does absolutely nothing for me.

    I have the older style Hissatsu folder and think it is a great knife! Truly, this knife has one purpose, slashing and stabbing people very efficiently. I have no doubt that the blade of my knife would be able to cut through layers of clothing and puncture just as easily.
