First appearing in Japan in the Heian period (794-1185), the tanto dagger was often worn alongside the Tachi and later Katana swords. Early tanto-like blades were often made from broken longer swords, or even yari spearpoints. It was customary for a samurai, upon entering a home peacefully, to remove his katana and keep his tanto on his person. In later centuries the Tanto would begin to lose popularity as the secondary Shoto sword as samurai began to prefer the longer Wakizashi.

This tanto, made by Dynasty Forge, features a blade crafted from 1060 high carbon spring steel mono-tempered to a Rockwell Hardness of approximately 52-53. The tsuka grip is of wood, wrapped in rayskin same. The tsuka-ito wrapping is black cotton with two dragon menuki beneath. The seppa are of copper and the habaki of brass. Bamboo Mekugi hold the blade in place, but allow for disassembly for maintenance and customization. The iron tsuba is done in the ring style reminiscent of the type favored by legendary samurai Minamoto Musashi. The saya scabbard is wood, coated with a glossy black lacquer and a matching black cotton sageo. It comes with a blue cloth dagger bag.


Please Note: It is common for this item to have different menuki when restocked from manufacturer. Menuki style may not match photos as shown.
