Cold Steel's Premium Tanto Includes High Quality Sword Bag
Cold Steel has used only premium traditional materials for this Emperor tanto's fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel), are expertly made and finely crafted from black iron.
The Habaki (blade collar), is hand made out of polished brass and the hilt is covered in Samé (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black cord. A beautiful brass Menuki (a small, ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances the sword's aesthetic appearance and makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as possible.
This exquisite tanto features a fully sharpened 1050 carbon steel blade, heat treated to a spring temper. The blade surface has been given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove).
This battle-ready tanto is an excellent example of a true battle ready tanto that also looks outstanding on display.
