The HZO series is the big brother to our battle tested HZT.  Featuring a 9" blade with a broader profile allowing for greatly increased cutting performance and excellent penetration capability.  The name O-Tanto refers to tanto in the larger end of the traditional size spectrum.  These were fierce blades that were preferred by some of the most notable Samurai in history.  This piece stays true to the spirit of the originals, but with the advantages of modern materials.  The combination of 80CrV2 high-carbon steel, and Daniel Winkler's expert craftsmanship, make for a true workhorse that is exceedingly tough and resilient while maintaining excellent edge retention.

This is a limited run of 50 Pieces.
