The Shi Shi Tanto is a great companion piece to the Shi Shi Katana. Made in the same tradition and high quality materials as the katana, this tanto performs in superior functionality and grace. The overall motif mirrors that of the katana and would make a beautiful addition for the collector or the practitioner. The Shi Shi Tanto is hand-wrapped in tender doeskin ito over samekawa (black dyed ray skin) allowing for a comfortable grip. The golden menuki feature a peony blossom, a symbol of bravery and honor, which is mirrored on the kozuka (knife). The hamon (temper line) on this forge folded steel tanto blade is prominent in the polish. There are two narrow grooves carved in the back of the blade. A matching kozuka (knife) is also featured on the tanto. A rain motif is etched in the habaki which ties together this subtle yet powerful tanto.
We also offer a Shi Shi Katana with fully matching furniture should you want to form a matching set. And as is true of all of our swords, each sword is carefully hand inspected for defects in workmanship and functionality before being offered up for sale.
