This is our first production
run of our new Tanto. There had been several requests for us to make a production
tanto over time, and we went through several rounds of prototyping as a response.
The original release date of the tanto had been pushed back several months through
several revisions until now.
tanto is a bit unique in the sense that it utilizes a true moroha kissaki. We
wanted to make something that is not as readily available elsewhere and to set
ourselves apart. Cross section of the forward half of this blade is a diamond
shape and feels extraordinarily light because of it.
tanto uses a through hardened 9260 Spring steel as material, and uses the standard
fitting dimensions. If this series of blades become popular, we will develop more
customized components at a later date. The current configuration lends itself
to match the Tenchi, Oniyuri, and the Kaze series welll.
are photos showing the overall apparence of the sword.
tsuka is wrapped with a real same panel wrap, and a black cotton ito wrap. The
tsuba is a steel construction.
is important to note that with a moroha kissaki, both the front and the rear surface
on the forward half of the sword is sharpened. It is critical to not practice
and perform katas which would involve contact to the mune of the blade when using
noted, this is our first run of a relatively new design. We will continue to make
minor modifications, refinements to this blade until we become more accustomed
to its production. As a first run, there may or may not be any portion of the
blade that can use more refining.... However, we have lowered the price accordingly
for this batch. Subsequent runs will increase in cost by $30 USD. In addition,
once we develop a more custom set of fittings for it, the price would also adjust
final photo is added in order to provide a size reference for the tanto as it
would be handled in iaido katas.
welcome and will be consolidated and reviewed as a group prior to production of
subsequent runs. Individual responses will not be issued.

"Shosen" (First Battle) katana is a trial run katana using our newest
design concept of a double bo-hi. It is hoped that this configuration will have
a better weight distribution for use during iaido katas or tameshigiri practices.
This sword is sharpened to allow for cutting exercises.
trial run is intended to determine the feasibility of the design in iaido applications
and to generate feedbacks in order to further refine the design for subsequent
runs if it is determined to be acceptable.
