Description Item Specs
The Tanto first made its appearance around the 8th century during the Heian Period. These first Tantos were almost always used as functional weapons and as a result did not have much artistic quality. Another result of the their functional use was that not many survived from this period. It was during this time and the years up until the 16th century, that the Tanto was worn with the Tachi as the Daisho of the Samurai. Women would also sometimes wear a smaller version of the Tanto in their Obi for self defense.

This Tanto is a Hira-Zukuri style. The Tanto and all of its components are authentically made in the traditional style.

The Tanto includes: A Certificate of Authenticity, Jade Tassel, Gift Box, and Sword Bag.
  • Blade: The blade of the Tanto has been hand forged from High Carbon steel and is through hardened.
  • The blade has been constructed in a Hira-Zukuri design. This is the most traditional design of the Tanto. This style lacks ridge lines and features a flat blade design.
  • The Tanto comes full tang and very sharp.
  • Saya: The Saya is constructed of hard wood with a full ray skin wrap. A clear high gloss laquer has been used to cover and seal the ray skin.
  • Tsuka: The Habaki is a one piece brass construction. The Fuchi is beautifully lacquered wood. The Tsuka is the same ray skin as the Saya.
  • Tassel: A brown tassel has been included with the Tanto. The tassel has a loop for easy hanging. An ochre-colored jade lion has been hung from the center of the tassel.
