Cold Steel Hatamoto, G-10 handles, Plain Edge, San Mai III Steel
In feudal Japan one
of the most highly coveted titles among a lord's high-ranking retainers
was Hatamoto. The fortunate Samurai on who this distinctive honor was
bestowed was allowed immediate access to his lord, day and night, and
was deemed trustworthy enough to wear his sword in his lord's presence.
Like its namesake, the Hatamoto was
designed to be a knife worthy of great respect and trust. A knife you
will treasure for years and one you can bet your life on in a pinch.
The blade has been precision hollow ground out of our famous San Mai
III; stainless, 25% stronger than any other stainless steel in the
world. For piercing power it features a modified tanto point (first
popularized by Lynn Thompson in the early 1980's). It pierces like a
dagger yet remains remarkably resistant to bending or breaking. For
cutting power, the edge is subtlety curved and ground thin and honed to
razor keenness so it will bite with even moderate pressure and
deliver dramatically deep, gaping cuts with full power blows.
To have this remarkable blade come
alive in your hand we have crafted a simple yet highly efficient handle
that will accommodate a wide variety of grip styles. For strength,
rigidity and security, we have resolutely insisted on thick Titanium
liners for the frame and overlaid them with high friction G-10 scales
that have been reinforced by forged Titanium bolsters. All handle
components have been bolted together with the latest in high strength
fasteners to form one homogenous unit of great strength and moderate
Lock strength is absolutely critical
in a knife like the Hatamoto, that's why we have equipped it with the
most reliable leaf spring locking mechanism on the market. Made of
Titanium and fitted to extremely close tolerances it has proven almost
impervious to the stress and shock that would destroy a lesser knife
costing even three or four times as much.
Quick access and convenient carry are
also attributes of the finest tactical folders so we have outfitted the
Hatamoto with a sleek yet effective pocket clip and thumb stud for
lightning fast opening.
