Description

Inspired by the short armour piercing swords used by Samurai in feudal Japan, this blade shape replaces a curved belly for an angular edge transition that makes for a much stronger and prominent point. That durable tip and strong robust point make it good for piercing tough objects. While most modern uses of a tanto do not carry over from the traditional use as an armour puncturing tool they can still be used to great effect on day to day tasks.

 

Honey Badger’s frictionless opening and closing action, facilitated by two opposing roller bearings containing a total of 18 ball bearings, makes using them a real pleasure.

 

This knife features a blade made from D2 steel – a high carbon, high-chromium tool steel that’s known for its high wear and abrasion-resistant properties.

These lightweight knives feature high-quality 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blades with excellent cutting ability and edge retention that are easy to resharpen when needed. The knives have a smooth opening and closing action, facilitated by two opposing roller bearings containing a total of 18 ball bearings. The handles are made from an FRN (Fibre Reinforced Nylon) material that feature a ridged honeycomb pattern to provide a solid multi-directional grip. Whilst light and of slim width, they are extremely tough, resistant to slipping even when wet and fit ergonomically in the hand.
