Japanese Tanto knives (or short swords) are characterized by their dagger-like design. The tanto knife first appeared around the year 900, and is a favorite among collectors today. At Knife Depot, you'll find a vast tanto blade selection, including single- and double-edged knives, straight and serrated blades as well as fixed-blade and folding styles. Look through the pages of tanto blades offered to find exactly what you're looking for, whether you prefer a utilitarian blade or a more decorative look. Affordable prices and unparalleled customer service make Knife Depot the best place to find a top-quality tanto knife (or two) to add to your collection.

Nice knife. Grip is just right; hefty but not too much for its size & construction. Blade shape is unique and flipper deploys quickly. Clip gripped too tight but loosened by prying up slightly; still snug enough where the knife won't come loose from the pocket too easily. I like the backwash finish; it give the knife that 'used' character without being 'used'. Been carrying it a lot lately.

Was not sure that I would like this knife, but the quality and usability are great selling points. The curved blade is definitely a key feature too. Love it! Carry it everywhere.

Kershaw is one of the top names in the business, & that's why I buy them. This knife is another winner. As for the seller, I have purchased more than a dozen items from them with never a glitch. I recommend both Kershaw & the Depot highly.

The item was received when indicated at the time of purchase. The knife is well balanced and feels very comfortable in hand. The quality of the craftsmanship is exceptional. It fits snugly into the leather sheath that accompanied it. I am a collector with a small collection and I am proud to have this piece among my collectibles.

There is nothing wrong with it but I wish it was 15% bigger.

Picked up this little gem & was not disappointed, both in the apparent quality of the materials & the attention to which it was carefully assembled. It bespoke of a blade costing several times its asking price. Damascus blades are usually on the brittle side but this tanto's profile was very good, if not impeccable, to say the least. As a collector of finer knives & curios, this tanto shares a proud place among them all. It never fails to attract attention & when shown, many believe it to be costing more along the lines of a custom piece. Can't go wrong with this in your trophy case!!

I'm generally pleased with United Cutlery products & the commander is no exception. Solid little knife, grip a bit small for my hands but sports a nice hilt, nonetheless, keeping your hands off the quite sharp blade. Sheath a little flimsy, though serviceable, balances out my firearm shoulder rig nicely. I'd like to see how this little tanto throws with its very blade-heavy profile(& very sharp point). Would make a good boot knife as the flexible sheath could be sewn into most anything. Priced right also.
