This Japanese Tanto knife features a fully sharpened 1060 carbon steel blade and traditionally wrapped, ray skin covered hilt. It comes with black lacquered scabbard. Overall 19-3/8 inches.

Cold Steel uses only traditional materials for the fittings of their Japanese Imperial swords. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel) are expertly made and finely crafted in nickel-silver.

The Habaki (blade collar) of this O Tanto is hand-made out of nickel-silver and the hilt is covered in samé (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with a black silk cord. A beautiful Menuki (a small ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances the appearance of this traditional handle.

Features a fully sharpened 1060 carbon steel blade, heat-treated to a spring temper. The blade surface is then given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove). Comes with a black lacquered scabbard.
