The Kojiro Crimson Tanto Sword, crafted with supreme Samurai style, is ready to be the ultimate back-up weapon to the legendary katana. The tanto sword was part of the Samurai class traditional regalia. This Kojiro has a hair-splitting sharp, 9 1/2” 1045 carbon steel blade, which extends from a polished brass habaki and a black and copper colored metal guard. The handle is hardwood wrapped in genuine ray skin and red cord-wrap the same way a katana is dressed. A black and copper colored metal pommel is the complementary piece to the decorative handguard. The 15 1/4” overall tanto sword fits like a glove in a red, lacquered wooden scabbard with red cord accents.
