Iai Tanto

Average rating: 5.0/5 - 26 customer reviews

About our Iai Tanto collection

Unlike Iaito, Tanto are produced in much smaller quantities which doesn't allow for standardization. Each piece is assembled by hand.
The Shirasaya model is designed to have the lowest cost possible for a high end made in Japan product.

Similar to all our Iaito, Tanto blades are made of high-quality bubble-free aluminum/zinc alloy and therefore, the blade cannot be sharpened.
