The Practical Plus Tanto (SH2259) matches our Practical Plus Katana (SH2073) and Wakizashi (SH2118). The blade is hand-forged high-carbon steel and differentially hardened using a traditional claying method (HRC 60 edge, HRC 40 spine) with a medium (chu) kissaki. The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent. The Practical Plus Tanto uses a flat black saya and a black cotton sageo. The tsuka has genuine ray skin (same) and the tsuka-ito is black synthetic leather for better gripping qualities. The antiqued fittings on this set are decorated in a Japanese dogwood motif with a beautiful antiqued black sunburst tsuba. A great economical tanto with fantastic quality.

    Review by Trev
    I have been a sword and knife collector for many years and this tanto is top value for the money. A great and well made blade. I have shopped at southern swords for a long time now amd they are a great firm to deal with. They have never let me down and they are so helpful....So shop without worries
