The Tantō is a straight or slightly curved, single-edged Japanese combat knife and, like the katana, usually has a tsuba and a matching saya. The Samurai always wore their tanto hidden within easy reach in the obi so that they could use it in close combat. The blade length is mostly 30 cm. In numerous records it is reported that pilgrims, travelers as well as women carried a tanto for protection. Over the years, the design of the tanto evolved and became more ornate. The tanto is used in numerous martial arts.

In my shop you will find Tantos with a blunt blade. Tantos with sharp blades are also available. Please contact me by mail, mobile or on site.
