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 heat treated and polished the 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 Brass Habaki, and he created a cast mold for the Brass Menuki as well. His artistic designs are highlighted in the Saya Scabbard, with Epoxy coated paintings finished with Buffalo Horn and a Copper Space. His handle work is intrinsically designed, using Ray skin, and cord wrapped in the traditional Sageo style. His handmade Brass Menuki lies underneath.
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.
