Specialty Tanto - Walnut and Maple
The perfect gift for that special martial artist in your life or for a thank you gift to a visiting sensei. The Tanto is a specialty design by laminating high quality hardwoods together for an elegant look.
Two options available are: 1) Walnut and Maple or 2) White Oak, Maple and Walnut. Please let me know if a custom design can be made for you.
As an option, you can choose a personalized Kanji / Katakana symbol(s) to be burned on the handle. Go to the "Kanji" item in this store (https://aikidowinnipeg.com/store/kanji-woodburning/) to add you selection to the cart. A person's name is easily done in Katakana.
The Tanto is 7/8" thick and a length of 11-3/4".
There is a "shinogi" or ridgeline between the "mune" or back of the blade and the "ha" or edge of the blade.
An excellent practice weapon in Aikido or other knife taking practice.
