    Default shobu-zukuri tanto

    Given how well this turned out I decided I would list it afterall.

    It is 10" overall, with a 5 1/2" blade. Blade is just under 1" wide and 1/8" thick.
    The blade is 1084 steel from Aldo.
    The mounting is african mahogany finished with tru-oil and black plastic, with a forged copper habaki.

    The knife has some imperfections, such as the poorly cut fullers and a slightly unsightly fitting of the kurikata.

    If you would like to own this knife, feel free to make an offer. I will ship USPS within the US.

    Just to be clear; That is not a hamon in the upper picture, but forge scale from the heat treat.

    I'll entertain any reasonable offer. I just don't have to bite
