I don't think of this knife as being tanto anything. If I were forced to characterize it accurately, and from my perspective, it's a dropped point with an angular belly. People are gonna say it's a tanto or tanto style, and that's cool with me. It's what it is, and it's that way for a number of very specific reasons.
Someone said at some point in time that the point where the two edges intersect is like a big serration. That has always struck me as a really interesting way to think of that feature of that design. For this project, I wanted a knife that COULD pry open a steel dishwasher, and cut things like one of the roots by pushing that intersection point into and through it. I've also cut a bit of firehose with it, and it works as intended.
DEK2 has two points, and one of them is double edged!
