Our Japanese Style Tanto Series has been a collaborated effort from Thailand's most talented bladesmiths. This gorgeous Japanese Design Tanto blade has been hand forged by Thai Blacksmith, Poom Chongkittiruk. Poom delivers an exceptional hand forged SK5 steel blade with traditional Japanese finishing touches. He skillfully moulded the steel to shape and then heat treated and polished the 3/4 hidden tang blade to a mirror finish. He expertly heat treated the blade using a vacuum heat treat technique.
"Mr. A" (Anucha) masterfully completed the handle work, using traditional Japanese techniques. He hand forged and welded the Brass Habaki, and he created a Stainless Steel Tsubu with a blow torch finish. The Ray Skin handle has a cord warpped Sageo pattern over a hand casted Brass Menuki. The handle has been pinned with a bamboo wood pin for extra strength and security. His artistic designs are highlighted in the Saya Scabbard, with Rubber Tree wood decorated with an Epoxy coated finish, with a Micarta end cap & cord ring.
Together they have created a stunning piece of functional art. Japanese influenced, Thai Made, the crafting of a timeless piece that has a story to tell with every fixture and fine craftsmanship. This is truly a functional conversational piece that will last generations.
