With a name that means “The Silent Sword,” this folding knife—nay, folding sword, also means nothing but business. Upon request from SOCOM (Special Operations Command), the Otonashi noh Ken is designed by James Williams—a man with 45 years of martial arts experience—for efficiency from tip to tang.

Its AUS-8 blade has a thin, elongated, modified tanto edge for increased cutting contact and reduced drag. True to its name, it deploys silently and locks securely, especially with the inclusion of the Lake and Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS) locking pin to ensure it doesn't close during use. Full-sized and textured G-10 handles give you increased grip, and a deep-pocket clip ensures covert carry in your pocket. Despite a full opened size of 10.13 inches, the Otanashi noh Ken stays light enough for EDC at 6.4 ounces.

If you need a silent, dependable blade that's as stealthy as it is effective, pick up the Otanashi noh Ken at the link below.

I've been debating to get this or the smaller Shizuka for a while now. They're both around the same price too. But my wallet be like: Bruh, you just bought a Yojimbo2...
Mikey Bautista ·
Oh man the Yojimbo has been on my list a while too, how is it to carry?

Super sharp out of the box. It's a little wide, when riding in small pockets. It's so light in the hand and the deployment is instantaneous. The lock is on spine of the knife and a little hard to press at first, until I placed a little grip tape on it. Also added a zip tie for the faux emerson wave effect. I was told it could happen, but tip is extremely brittle that it can break off. It's microscopic, but to those who pay attention to detail, it can be an eye sore :(
Mikey Bautista ·
Yikes, that's unfortunate, considering it's a pretty high end steel. :(
saint_shinobi ·
Yeah, and the price of the knife too.
