The Tanto Dimensions + the Bohi
This blade has a measurement of 21 centimeters long and 2.8 centimeters wide; its tsuka is adequately sized at 11 centimeters. This is perfect for single-handed wielding. For its weight, this blade is light at just 0.5 kilograms.
Though already lightweight, the blade is made even lighter because of the double bohi that is present. This helps make the sword lighter while also giving outstanding tachi kaze. This is the sword wind sound that is made when the knife is swung. Also, the bohis form aids in lessening any loss of strength and durability. This also works similarly to the I-beam used in the construction industry.
Fully Functional, Durable, and Rigid
This tanto blade is a full tang piece. It means that its blade and tsuka are a single piece of metal. This happens since the tang goes all the way towards the entire length of the tsuka. It gives a level of rigidity to the knife, making it a solid and sturdy piece to enjoy. It is also sharpened, making it ready for real-time cutting practice.
Since this blade has also gone through clay tempering, it is more resilient and can retain its sharpness. The process can be done via the classic method of clay coat tempering, which also makes this blade perfect for extensive tameshigiri. Create Your Custom Samurai Sword

The Tanto for Womens Seppuku
It is believed that the tanto blade was also used by women in history. However, it was to avoid dishonor. They would kill themselves via seppuku. When it came to men, they made use of the wakizashi to disembowel themselves. It is done by pushing the blade through their stomach, and right to their heart.
