Tanto Folding Knives

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 front edge meets the bottom edge at an obtuse angle rather than curving to meet it as seen in the Japanese tanto. Oso Grande has a great selection of both American and Japanese style Tanto blades for you to choose from. Have fun shopping!

Thanks for promptly sending out the knife. The knife is excellent and the stag handles are better than I had hoped. I am extremely pleased with the knife. Thanks for having that last one in stock. This will be my EDC knife now.
