Ten Kei Tanto by John Lee

The term "Ten Kei" can be translated as "gift from heaven" and stands as a symbol of the beauty of nature. Fine floral motifs are reflected in the hand-crafted, finished with gold and silver fittings. The blade is forged by hand in elaborate Kobuse style. Here, surrounded by a hard shell made of 1095 carbon steel a core of softer, low carbon steel.  Like its historic predecessor also connects this Tanto grace and benefits in a unique way.  The hardening is differentiated to about 60 ° Rockwell to the edge and about 40 ° Rockwell at the back of the blade. Visible is the hardness difference in a genuine, finely worked out hamon line.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

My glove size is 9. What size of gauntlets should I order if I want to wear padded leather gloves inside?

If you want to wear un-padded leather gloves in the gauntlets, order both in the same size (in your case size 9). With padded leather gloves we recommend to order the gauntlets always one size higher (so in your case 10). If you discover that the goods do not fit after receiving it, you can exchange it for free. You only pay the shipping costs.
