Following our successful first collaboration with Daniel Winkler, our second offering is a Hira Zukuri tanto with a distinctive iori mune, or ridged spine. Designed for the rigors of modern combat while remaining true to classical design concepts, this blade excels at both slashing and penetration. 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.
