Description
 
Perfect reproduction of the Kanmuri Otoshi Zukuri blade, one of the most popular styles of Toshin of the Yamato Smiths School in the middle of Kamakura Period (1185~1333).

The Kanmuri Otoshi Zukuri features a particular blade with a Mune (back edge) that becomes thinner from the half of the blade towards the Kissaki (tip).
Also Yamato Budogu decided to include a Koshi Hi (short groove) to improve even more the traditional aspect of this Tanto.




The Tsuka and Saya are wrapped in black Soitomaki (full string wrapped) style that gives it not only a very particular appearance, but also together with the blackened brass fittings an extra reinforce.

Such a unique Tanto can be used not only in Keiko but also it is perfect for collection. The Hiri blade is firmly held by double Mekugi and the Saya comes with Kojiri.
