True warriors share!



The Paul Chen Practical Plus Tanto (SH2259) provides a very economical cutting tanto, but uses more traditional fittings and construction methods than the practical series tanto. The blade is hand-forged high-carbon steel and differentially tempered using a traditional claying method (HRC 60 edge, HRC 40 spine). The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent. The Practical Plus Tanto has a textured black saya and a black Japanese cotton sageo. The tsuka has genuine ray skin (same) and the tsuka-ito is black synthetic leather for better gripping qualities. The antiqued fittings on this set are decorated in a Japanese dogwood motif with a beautiful antiqued black sunburst tsuba. A great econimcal tanto with fantastic quality.

    I bought the tanto as part of a set and it is beautiful. The Hamon is awesome, I cannot believe the quality of this product for the money. Great buy!
