Our Japanese Style Tanto Series has been a collaborated effort from Thailand's most talented bladesmiths. This gorgeous Japanese Designed Tanto blade has been hand forged by Thai Blacksmith, Khun Poom. Khun Poom delivers an exceptional hand forged SK4 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 enhance the contrast of the Clay Tempered Hamon.
"Mr. A" (Khun Anucha) masterfully completed the fully disassembling handle work, using traditional Japanese techniques. He hand forged the Copper Habaki, and he uses genuine buffalo horn in several key features, unifying the blade to the Japanese resin (Urushi) coated handle with Thai Buddhist blessed Golden Leaf. The authentic stingray skin wrapped handle uses a Buffalo Horn pin for extra strength and security. The handmade menuki is made from solid brass. His artistic designs are highlighted in the Saya Scabbard, with Pine Tree wood decorated with Epoxy coated Buffalo Horn spacer & Copper 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.
