The Mono-Tanto is familiar but completely new to most people. The Tanto is Japanese in origin and excels at ultimate tip-strength. This is typically a younger, less traditional or HEAVY knife user who adores this shape. We have innovated the traditional Tanto that typically had 2 grinds and done it with one grind. It offers a style that is pleasant to the eyes that prefer that shape with an exceedingly tough tip. Like all our blades and truly a departure from the typical multi-tool industry, our blades are made from only the world’s finest steels. We are not a tool company making knives but rather a knife company making tools. There has been no compromise made to incorporate these world-class materials like CPM S35VN and Magnacut Steels.
