    ~ 1558 Dated Shigeyuki Tanto 15 Points Bungo Buzen Japanese Dagger ~


    A tanto ("short blade") is one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were worn by the samurai class of feudal Japan. The tanto dates to the Heian period, when it was mainly used as a weapon but evolved in design over the years to become more ornate.

    Tanto were mostly carried by samurai, as commoners did not generally wear them.

    The blade is single edged.

    The dagger comes with beautiful well preserved brass fittings.

    The tsuba (the guard) has traditional Japanese 'fire dragon' engravings.

    The habaki (the rain guard) is from polished copper.

    The Saya (the scabbard) is made of brown lacquered relief decorated wood and leather.

    The grip is of brown leather decorated on both sides with a brass dragon in high relief.

    Hadleys reference SH1743

    The length of the blade is 15.7 inches (40 cm), including the tang under the grip.
