The “Sakura” is a tactical knife inspired by traditional Japanese knife Tanto featuring diamond blade construction. Such knives were commonly used in combat, for example, for finishing off an enemy, harakiri or beheading. Most often a Tanto was used by Samurai as an additional sword, but also by representatives of civil professions and intellectuals for self-defense purposes. Sometimes a small tanto could be worn also by women.
After the World War II a tanto became popular worldwide. In the United States and other countries local manufactures of tanto deviate from Japanese canons, for example, such pieces are void of double-edged blade or feature a sharp bend to the blade of a knife. But for most fans of knife fighting it is a secondary factor. A Tanto is both good: in traditional Japanese version and in modernized American one.
