The Dragonfly Tanto is a great companion piece to the Dragonfly 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 hamon (temper line) and hada (grain/layers) on this forged and folded steel tanto blade are prominent in the polish. The frontside of the blade features a slight hi (groove) while the back bears an ornate carving. A rain motif is etched in the habaki which ties together this subtle yet powerful tanto.Blade: 11"
