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 enhance the contrast of the Clay Tempered Hamon.
"Mr. A" (Anucha) masterfully completed the handle work, using traditional Japanese techniques. He hand forged and welded the Copper Habaki, and he created a Tsubu using genuine Buffalo Horn, unifying the blade to the the Epoxy coated cord wrapped handle. The handle uses a Buffalo Horn pin for extra strength and security. His artistic designs are highlighted in the Saya Scabbard, with Rubber Tree wood decorated with Epoxy coated paintings, 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.
