12" carbon steel bladeCast decorative tsubaAntique brass-finished accentsImitation ray skin handleCord handle wrappingsCoordinating scabbard21-1/4" overall length
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.

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.
Just got it looks good thanks BUDK
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.
