Tanto Style Blades

Tanto Style Blade

The Tanto Style blade was designed with an enhanced potential for piercing / penetration of harder materials vs slicing.  This is due to its high point and flat grind which meet the spine of the knife at an angle instead of a curve.  This leads to more metal in the tip giving it the durability needed for direct and repeated piercing as apposed to slicing in which curved blades are normally preferred.  The other benefit to this design is the visual appeal that result from its strong and aggressive lines making it stand out from other blade styles when in use.
