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 leading up to 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.
Blade Material:High Carbon Steel
Blade: The blade of the Tanto has been constructed from through hardened high carbon steel. A bohi runs along the mune of the blade. The blade comes sharp with a full tang.
Saya: The saya is wooden and painted black, with hand carved inscriptions of dragons It fits seamlessly into the tsuka.
Tsuka: The Habaki is a one piece brass construction that secures the blade. The Tsuka is the same black dragon carved wood as the Saya. One wooden Mekugi secure the tang of the sword in the Tsuka.
