The Emerson Tactical Kwaiken is a stunning modern interpretation of the personal concealed side arm of the Samurai warrior, meant to be discreetly carried for extreme close and personal use. The Emerson Kwaiken is a knife any modern warrior could carry with ease and confidence.
A warrior of the Samurai class in Japan was bound by both oath and honor to never be unarmed. It was a way of life that demanded that one was never to be without his weapons so that if his lord or himself were ever attacked, he could defend himself or protect his lord with his life. The iconic Japanese sword, either Katana or Wakasashi, was the defining weapon of choice for the Samurai soldier in open battle.
However, in certain situations or environments, the use, or at times, the carry of a long sword was prohibited by either a lack of space or by strict social rules of etiquette. In order to never let oneself be unarmed, or without a “sword,” the ever vigilant and resourceful Samurai developed shorter and shorter versions of a personal carry weapon that could be carried or hidden inside the folds of the traditional kimono worn by these individuals. Shortened to a length of between eight to twelve inches, this dagger called the Kwaiken became the Samurai's version of their everyday pocket knife. All the while in the hands of a skilled practitioner still being an extremely efficient weapon of self defense.
The Emerson folding Kwaiken has pulled that age old design screaming into the 21st century without losing or compromising any of those Samurai ideals. The blade design is a long, trailing, single edged dagger that is extremely fast and efficient while maintaining all of the sleek style and look of the original Samurai Kwaiken. With the addition of a deep finger choil, Emerson has improved the tactical application and safety by upgrading the design into a tactical version any modern user could carry in any situation. With the patented Emerson wave feature, this pocket Samurai sword will still be at your beck and call 24/7 and never leave you without honor or the disadvantage of ever being unarmed.”
