The tanto blade is constructed from 440 stainless steel, is black-coated and has a partially serrated edge. The flipper in the unfolded state serves also as a guard and prevents slipping from the hand.
A belt cutter is built-in into the handle. The handle is also equipped with a glass crusher and an eye for a lanyard.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
