Most tantos seen on the American cutlery market are Americanized formats. Like the Japanese tanto, the Americanized tanto has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to the point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong. This thick area helps absorb the impact from piercing, as the tanto was originally designed for armor piercing.
The Armageddon arrived today. I am very impressed. Thank you and the Oso Grande team for your friendly help and the efficient processing of my order.
