Traditionally worn by the Samuari class of feudal Japan, tanto swords have a proud and storied lineage, and they continue to be a fascinating relic even into the modern era. Smaller than both a katana and a wakizashi, traditional Samurai tantos are also widely used in modern martial arts and are a prized collectible among sword enthusiasts.

This Black Emperor tanto sword features a sturdy stainless steel blade done in the traditional tanto design and measuring 12"" in length. Like its predecessors, it features a large hand guard to protect your hand from slipping to the blade during use.

A black faux ray skin and cord-wrapped handle provides a secure grip and adds authenticity and style to this design. Antique brass-finished hardware accents give this tanto an old-world look at an affordable price. It includes a matching scabbard to house the blade in true Samurai style. Measures 21-1/4"" overall.

Clearly for show

Despite being made of carbon steel, these tantos are purely wall hangers, but that's fine because they actually look really cool up on a wall. Only complaint is that they despite looking the part, it feels a little cheap. When I unsheathed the black tanto, it took the top section of the sheath with it. The hardware on the sheath is glued on, and someone did a bad job on this particular tanto. Nothing a little super glue won't fix, but I'm deducting a star because of it. No complains on the white tanto though. Worth a buy if you want some cool looking swords for your wall.

Now let me tell you what. This isn't some "Black Emperor Tanto Sword w/ Matching scabbard", its a tanto version of Yubashiri, one of Zoro's swords from One Piece. And I don't know why it exists. You can buy a crappy version of the accurate sized replica of Yubashiri here on Trueswords, or a better version elsewhere. All-in-all, would buy again.
