Description
Scroll for more photos! - Limited USA Supply

Part of our Mother of Pearl series, the Dragon Tanto has a stunning ceremonial appearance. Mother of pearl is painstakingly inlaid on both sides of the saya to form the dragon and raising sun pattern. Completely smooth, the pattern is under the glossy lacquered finish. No two tantos are the same!

Makes an excellent companion to your larger Shirasaya swords.

Although it proved hard to photograph, the mahogany red and black wood grain is very well pronounced and beautiful to behold in person. The blade comes stout, extremely sharp, and with an attractive hamon. The construction is rock solid.

I ordered this item on a Sunday and it arrived on a Tuesday! That alone will make Trueswords my only site for such collectables and self defense gear(especially when I feel paraniod or after a re-watch marathon of the walking dead)<br /><br />Now back to the subject; first of all this piece of art should NOT be treated as a toy, but not that you would dare because it is SO WELL MADE it's incredible. Even the Jade adornment is authentic jade! The blade fits into the sheath TIGHT and perfectly and you can tell lots of details were put into this blade, from the pearl inlays (same design but will vary since it's hand made) to the wood used. It is literally an antique replica. <br /><br />Absolutely what I expected and more

I gave this to my wife for her birthday,<br />She loves it.<br />The photos do not do it justice.<br />I did see this at another site, but it was twice the price.<br /><br />If your lady likes Japanese Art her this.

This Tanto is a great buy, the blade is nice and long and the in lay is excellent. It has a snug fit into its saya and as a whole really attracts the eye. I have no problem and found no defect in this, excellent.
