This model incorporates our OutBurst assisted opening mechanism. The Heiho uses our stainless steel InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, and textured G10 scales that are machined with Japanese kanji characters that signify Strategy. A thumb disk allows rapid opening with either hand, or the custom stainless steel clip can be quickly and easily mounted right- or left-handed with a single screw, yielding knives that are truly ambidextrous. The satin-finished blade is easy to conceal carry. It weighs only 3.6 ounces. Because some operators prefer it, we have used our patented LAWKS, the Lake and Walker Knife Safety innovation. LAWKS sets a pin between the locking liner and the frame. This pin acts as an additional layer of safety, so the locking liner is less likely to disengage during use. To engage the safety, push the LAWKS lever forward. To close the knife, pull the LAWKS lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position.
