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.
Walnut was used the make the handle with, black 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.
