    Tanto love

    I will say straight up I am usually not a fan of the tanto, though will admit I have slowly coming to appreciate the advantages of the design (in particular the Americanized Tanto in the form of the Cleaver special CS Recon Tanto sold on special for $55, Aus-8a blade steel, basically an indestructible, sharpened pry bar, bombproof design beater piece that can be abused, and if destroyed replaced and abused again.)

    Here are my Tanto's, I have a small collection of them, I have started this thread with the intention that people add in their Tanto's in their collection (even if they have 1 or 100), post it in here and lets see 'em



    Top-Bottom
    CS Kobun (excellent EDC Tanto, not that we can EDC a fixed blade for the most part)
    Hanwei Tactical Tanto (distal-tapered, edge-tempered blade (60HRC edge)[hamon], rayskin handle wrap)
    CS Recon Tanto (Aus-8a, Japanese made version)
    CS Outdoorsman san maiIII (Japanese made) this is a Tanto-ish knife, just enough tanto for me to include looks more of the traditional tanto rather than a Americanized tanto.

    Please add yours to this thread and show off yours.

    Thanks mate, I am glad you added a folder in there, I should have mentioned that, fixed blades or folders just gotta be a tanto.
