ONE OF OUR FAVORITES! Our TACTICAL REVERSE TANTO is designed with steep reverse angle which helps stiffen the tip and makes it resistant to chipping. The geometry of the straight blade is ideal and makes the cutting surface more traditional and easy to maintain. The 5" handle is made to fit small or large hands and is fixed with dark Maroon Micarta and pinned with a mosaic pin and additional brass pins. Comes with a custom sheath that fits the knife like a glove. We used Sheep's Neck Skin and hand form it to fit this functional art piece to perfection. Our Damascus is hand forged with combinations of 1095 High Carbon and 4340 High Tensile Steel forming over 256+ layers. We oil quench and temper to a hardness of 57-58 Rockwell C.

Some of the many Damascus steel advantages include the following: Blade edge resistance from the harder steel, micro serrations from the alternating layers, ductility from the HT 4340 layer.
