Tantō is one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were worn by the samurai class of feudal Japan.  Tantō dates back to the Heinan period when it was mainly used as a weapon but evolved in design over the years to become more ornate.

This Katana Tanto is a combination design based on traditional tanto and a type of Japanese pocket knife that was traditionally carried in the sleeve.  This tanto followed the traditional process of sword making in Japan.  This sword is made of 1095 and 1084 high carbon steel, clay tempered and hand forged resulting in over 3,000 layers which gives it razor sharp edge while avoiding any impurities that commercially manufactured blade usually would have.

Clay tempering is perhaps one of the most skilled art forms of sword making. Through rapid heating and cooling the blade becomes extremely hard, yet fragile. Clay tempering infused into the blade, allows for a slower cool down process, ensuring the blade remains razor sharp, while key parts of the blade remain rigid and flexible. Passed down from generations by the Samurai, a Clay Tempered Sword is a testament to precision, art, and ingenuity.  The clay temper process combines the characters of toughness and flexibility and results in a genuine hamon (temper line).  Unique visible hamon pattern on this beautifully made blade comes from the differential hardening where the blade is quenched so that the edge is harder than the spine or body of the blade.  The blade is hand polished which gives it glossy mirror-effect.  It comes with hardwood saya (sheath) with matching handle. The full tang is secured into the handle with bamboo mekugi peg.  The fit and finish gives its sleek look yet comfy in your palm.
