    Hon Kokutan - Superior Tanto

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Flat Spine | Rounded butt | Short Kissaki

    This African ebony (Hon Kokutan) Tanto has an extensive finish: a Hanmaru Tsukagashi (rounded handle), a Hiramine (flat spine), and a Shokissaki (short tip). 

    African ebony is the rarest, most valuable, and of course the most expensive of woods offered. This is a luxury wood, not necessarily very strong but extremely heavy. It is used to make ornamental Tanto. The African ebony Tanto are often offered to a teacher by his students as a gift during major occasions. The wood used by our master craftsman is directly imported from Africa.

    • Finish : oil polished
    • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki

    All our high-end weapons are offered unvarnished (camellia oil polish finish). Note that unvarnished weapons are much more pleasant to the touch as well as usage.
    Unvarnished weapons are are more ecologically-friendly, but they require regular (monthly) maintenance with oil (camellia or wood maintenance oil) and they can only be made from the finest woods. Given the need for maintenance of these weapons, our stocks are limited. Also, since the craftsmen must select the best wood possible to manufacture these weapons, the processing time is longer than for varnished weapons. If out of stock or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage.
