Traditional Tanto by NZ Naihi
I have long been an admirer of Japanese styled knives & have chosen the Tanto style for this very reason. They are a superb piece of design & offer functionality as well as fashion.
The overall length of 200mm gives this knife a strong, solid sturdy look, the handle & finger guard are 110mm combined which gives the user so much control. As balance is important the handle materiel was chosen to ensure that the weight distribution was perfect.
A nice mid colour piece of Matai was used the make the handle with, red handle inserts draw out the colour & grain of the wood. To further enhance the wood we fitted two 2.5mm nickel silver pins & a 5mm lanyard tube.
It really all came together nicely, very pleased with the overall look & feel of this blade.
