The Hanwei Tactical Tanto isn't just a logical extension to their popular Tactical Wakizashi and Tactical Katana it's an updated interpretation of the Samurai fighting knife. A classic blade style with modern construction, it doesn't get any better than this!
Based on the blade geometry and superb cutting ability of the Paul Chen Raptor series tanto but with full tang construction for ultimate blade strength. The 5160 high-carbon spring steel blade is plasma coated for corrosion protection and the checkered Kraton handle provides a sure foul-weather grip. The fiberglass scabbard construction avoids water absorption and reduces carrying weight, while several lanyard holes and the included Paracord provide carrying and backpack attachment options.
Premium quality made by Hanwei.
Specifications may vary slightly from piece to piece.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
