Shinbu - Designed by James Williams

The Shinbu knife by James Williams is designed specifically to be used by modern military personnel, many of James Williams’ creations are carried by special forces while deployed overseas and the Shinbu is popular for use in close-quarter combat due to its size.

James Williams is a former U.S. Army officer with 45+ years of experience in numerous martial arts disciplines, his high-carbon (YK-30 steel) knives follow centuries of Japanese tradition and have cord-wrapped handles with sting-ray skin underlays. Each of the Shinbu knives come with a military-spec sheath and offer the kind of build quality that’ll make them a hell of a cool family heirloom.
