The Sakimori, which means “noble defender” in Japanese, certainly lives up to its name. At nearly a foot long, this beastly fixed blade is designed by formidable knifemaker James Williams, who boasts a half century of experience in close-quarters combat. The blade is about 6 inches long and made from O1 tool steel that’s been hardened to around 57 on the Rockwell scale. The point trails upward, giving the user maximum wrist extension and slashing power. The handle is wrapped tight in paracord to facilitate a secure hold in the rain, muck, and heat. A Molle- and belt-compatible kydex sheath is included for on-the-go carry, too.
