High Carbon Steel Tanto Sword - More Info
The smallest of the Samurai swords, Japanese Tanto blades still hold a place of pride for many. Check out our many Tanto for sale, and see which one strikes your fancy.
Tanto are the oldest of the Samurai swords. They are a type of dagger, and, as such, have much less curvature (if any) than the larger swords. Slightly smaller than a Wakizashi, they were often worn with Tachi as part of a Daisho (big-little sword set). Just because Tanto are smaller in stature does not make them any less impressive - like all Japanese swords, they are as much works of art as weapons, if not more so.
