The functional tanto is a Japanese dagger, strictly one with a guard and has all of the fittings used on swords. The tanto blades rarely exceed 12 inches in length and usually accompanying a katana. These tantos combine the best attributes of a traditional tanto with modern features that make this an eminently practical tool. The tantos blades are shaped just like the Japanese tantos. All of our Tantos feature a deep lustrous satin finish on the hollow ground blade bevels and a contrasting line grain finish on the blade flats.
