The Tanto was the favoured back up weapon of the traditional Samurai. Being significantly shorter than the Katana and Wakazashi, the Tanto was the perfect weapon for light engagements and stealth operations where its pointed, razor sharp blade was perfect for finding weak points in the enemies armour.
Made by Cold Steel, this Tanto closely follows the traditional Japanese design with a ray skin handle that is covered in heavy black silk for a secure grip and authentic look. The blade of this short sword is incredibly strong and sharp and, thanks to its carbon steel construction, is impervious to rust and corrosion.
Comes with a black lacquered scabbard and violet carry bag.
