This is our second version
production run of our 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.
the v2 moroha kissaki, the rear surface on the forward half of the sword is smoothed
out instead of being sharpened as in the original version. This is so that practice
can be conducted safely if the hand comes into contact with the mune of the blade
when using this tanto.
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 accordingly .
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.

Sale Price: $149.99
(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.
v.2 includes edits based on feedbacks, in particular to the mune finish so that
there is no risk of cutting the web of palm during noto.
