Face the world as a modern samurai or ninja with the appropriate blade in hand. Check out the Modern Tanto and add it to your gear. Made from 1566 spring steel, this functional knife features a curved, single-edge blade. The blade features a visible temper line, or hamon. There is a copper blade collar, or habaki, at the base of the blade.
The knife continues with a small black guard, or tsuba. Then, the full-tang tanto has a G10 fiberglass laminate handle. The dual-pinned, textured grip features silver accents in the shape of lion dogs, known as shi shi. Finally, this modern samurai knife comes with a black scabbard. It has an olive-green paracord wrapping, or sageo, near the top.
You can take this tanto with you to your next battle or add it to your weapon collection. Combine it with the Modern Katana (SD35470) for a fierce duo. When it is not in use, put it on a display stand or keep it sharp with some sword maintenance supplies.
The traditional tanto dates back to the Heian period in Japan. Said period was from 794 to 1185 AD. The term tanto refers to a single or double-edged dagger and literally translates to short sword.
