    Ko tanto (Double edge) one off

    Hey all! I've been playing around with one off designs lately, which is something I haven't done in a long time. This one is a double edge, short, variation of my inazuma tanto. I also hand carved a portion of the fuller in a more traditional shape, following the curve of the top bevel. The top edge is quite sharp.
    The tsuba is 6al4v titanium and the menuki are Zirconium. I used some very nice cream stingray under the wrap. All epoxy soaked for durability.
    The Hartsfield style aluminum sheath is wrapped in waxed kangaroo leather and lined with kevlar. OAL is 10" with a 5.5" blade.

    Thanks for looking!!
