This Ronin Katana Dojo Pro Tanto has a blade that is notably longer than most tanto. Straight-edged and thick spined, a Tanto like this is a good cutter, but truly excels at thrusting and penetrating into the weak points of armor. A handy weapon should a warrior find himself grappling and wrestling armored foes, or cutting down such targets in nighttime subterfuge. All black, this Tantos bat-themed fittings take inspiration from this nighttime predator which intuitively perceives its surroundings and strikes quickly and decisively.
The blade is forged from 1060 high carbon steel; the tsuba is iron and its habaki and seppa blade mountings are crafted from brass. The fuchi and kashira are blackened metal and the wooden tsuka has panels of genuine rayskin which are inlaid and blackened with lacquer. A tsuka ito wrap of knotted cord completes the grip.
The tanto is paired with a wooden saya scabbard which is finished with black lacquer and a sageo cord. A cloth dagger bag is included.
