This Japanese inspired Tantō Short Sword (短刀) was made by Poom Chongkittiruk. When Khun Poom isn't moonlighting as a 5-Star Chef at Bangkok's most elite hotels, or home brewing a small batch of rare Thai craft beer, he's likely making a Japanese Katana or short sword. We're privileged to have his expertise and craftsmanship on the Siam Blade's team.
His blades are rare and unique, with a high level of intricate detail reflecting the Japanese historical sword making techniques with a keen understanding on the rituals and methods taken to achieve a great sword. This is a once in a lifetime blade offered only once a year. If there's quantity available, it's priced to sell and reflecting the stunning craftsmanship this far east you can get without touching Japan.
Proudly made in Thailand.
