The tanto is the knife worn traditionally by the Samurai. The tanto was not so much a working knife, but a secondary weapon that was kept with him at all times. For more information on the use of tanto we have a video covering Tanto-Jitsu in our DVD section.
The katana was the "primary" weapon of the samurai. However, often the samurai would carry a second blade, a tanto or wakizashi, to be used as a "backup" of sorts. Also, traditionally it was considered very rude to enter a house without removing your katana at the door. And instead of staying unarmed they would normally leave either the tanto or wakizashi in their belt. Wakizashi are any blade over about 12" long and under about 24" long although most were usually around 18".
