Tanto (all models)

Average rating: 4.5/5 - 8 customer reviews

About Our Tanto

The wooden weapons proposed by Seido are manufactured by one of the last four traditional workshop in the south of Japan, in the region of Miyakonojo (Kyushu), Horinouchi, Nidome, Matsuzaki and Aramaki (learn more about the workshops on our Artisans Presentation Page). 
This section contains all Tanto offered by Seido, made from wood, but also rubber tanto, soft tanto and alloy tanto (similar to Iaito blades).

All Tanto can be engraved directly in our facilities within a few days.
Finally, most of our weapons can be ordered either painted (urethane) or unvarnished. Unvarnished weapons require more maintenance but their touch is without comparison. Unvarnished weapons are significantly more expensive because of the more extensive polishing and treatment with camellia oil.
