This Ronin Katana Dojo Pro Tanto has a through-hardened blade of 1060 high carbon steel. The tsuba is iron and the habaki and seppa are brass. The fuchi and kashira pommel cap are antique-finished metal and the wooden grip is inlaid with genuine rayskin and overlaid with knotted tsuka-ito cord. The tanto comes with a black lacquered wooden saya scabbard with a sageo cord. A cloth dagger bag is included.
This Tanto has blade geometry that is quite complex and its performance has been optimized by this attention to detail. The spine of the blade tapers considerably after its first third and this greatly reduces weight whilst thinning the cross-section of the blade to give it less drag when passing through a target. The blade widens up at its tip for a chisel-like kissaki designed to puncture thick clothing and even the weaker points in armor with ease. The spine of the bottom third of the blade is wide to give it strength and its deep fullers remove unneeded weight from the base of the blade without sacrificing minimal durability due an I-beam like shape for this portion of the spine.
