SAKURA is a charismatic and comfortable knife inspired by the traditional Japanese short sword tanto. Samurai used such knives in a pair of swords as a second small sword in battle or as a stabbing weapon. It could also be worn for self-defense by representatives of peaceful professions and women.
We have made the knife’s concave bevels and added a stiffening rib shifted closer to the spine. The SAKURA knife has a very special shape of the handle. It expands towards the blade and ensures a secure grip and safe use of the knife during a power stroke –the handle automatically stops the movement of the hand towards the cutting edge.
The Tanto SAKURA by Blade Brothers Knives is perfect for camping and hiking – the cutting edge allows you to sharpen tent stakes and slice food equally conveniently.
