Our Japanese Style Tanto Series has been a collaborated effort from Thailand's most talented Swordsmiths.
This gorgeous Japanese designed Aikuchi Tanto Sword has been a work of art from 3 very talented Thai Swordsmiths & Knife Makers in Thailand.
Swordsmith "Mr. A" (Anucha) hand forged the SK5 Steel blade from scratch. Mr. A delivers an exceptional hand forged SK5 steel blade with traditional Japanese finishing touches. He skillfully moulded and shaped the blade, into a 3/4 tapered tang & Tanto blade.
The blade was then professionally heat treated by Master Smith Anuchit Promprakai of Wanaknife. He used a Clay tempering hardening technique to produce the beautiful natural Hamon.
Poom Chongkittiruk finished off the blade by polishing it to enhance the natural contrast of the Hamon and to produce a mirror finish on the spine.
"Mr. A" (Anucha) masterfully completed the handle work, using traditional Japanese techniques. He hand forged and welded the Brass & Copper Habaki. His artistic designs are highlighted in the Saya Scabbard, decorated with oyster shells, buffalo horn and gold leaf paintings. He finished the Saya Scabbard with a unique feature of fitted Stainless Steel Chopsticks that slide into the design seamlessly. His handle work is intrinsically designed, using authentic Sting Ray skin over a Pine Wood base.
Together, this collaborated effort of talented Thai Blacksmiths 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.
