Old Pride-Handmade Japanese Tanto Style Athame-9 Inch


Default Title
Old pride is a handmade Japanese Tanto style athame. This athame differs slightly from your typical "dagger" style blade, as the blade is double edged on one side, and resembles a Japanese style sword blade. Comes with a matching, hand sewn leather sheath, to protect your athame when not in use.

This Tanto styled athame is 9 inches long with a 5 inch blade. The blade is hand forged with O-1 Tool steel. It comes with a brass guard as well as cocobolo wood handle. This athame was hand forged in the traditions of the old world armorer's of fudal Japan, however with modern tool steel. This blade would have been carried as a last resort defence of Shogun or influnential families. This has been tempered to RC of 56-58 on the rockwell c hardness scale. It is easily sharpened. Due to this athame being High Carbon tool steel, it must be kept clean and dry. This will hold an edge very well and last a lifetime if kept oiled with good quality oil or silicone gun cloth.
