What is a Tanto and What is it used for?

Tanto knives are Japanese blades with a long history. They were originally designed for stabbing and thrusting, but many modern tanto are used for general cutting tasks.

History of the Tanto Knife

The word "tanto" means "short sword" in Japanese, and these knives are thought to have been invented during the Muromachi period (1336-1573). At this time, Japan was divided into provinces called han, which were ruled by lords called daimyo. The daimyo needed weapons for personal protection, as well as for an army. The tanto knife was the perfect weapon because it could be easily concealed under clothing or carried inside a belt sheath.

Tanto Blades

The blade on a tanto is relatively short compared to other types of knives. It measures between 6 inches and 13 inches long, but most tanto blades fall between 8 inches and 10 inches long. The blade is usually curved or straight-edged and has either one or two sharpened edges running along its length. Some have double-edged blades that resemble katana swords in appearance but lack their sharpness due to their shorter length. Tanto blades also differ from katanas because they don't have ricasso crossguards.
