James Williams blade designs

I've been a fan of the Osoraku-style blades for years now, and I've been a fan of the CRKT James Williams blades, especially the Hissatsu. Yes, it's 440SS, but the blades are inexpensive & I'm not using them daily. the trainers are cheap, too (~$40):


Recently, I've acquired these, as well:


The Otanashi rides in my right side hip pocket, the Shizuka in the trauma plate pocket of my vest. The only difference between the two is size.

I like the simple frame lock design for no other reason then it is probably one of the least likely designs to close on me (in the infentessimal probability) if I ever actually have to use these blades for their original intended purposes.  The additional liner lock... well... lock turns the blades essentially into fixed blade knives.

Endeavor to be emulable, not suck, persevere, and, imbue ostrobogulousness.
