Best tanto under $100 12/13/2021
I spent way too much much time looking for a decent tanto under $100. Most good tantos are well over $100 and the ones that are under $100 are usually cheaply made with 1045 steel and just look terrible. When I saw this tanto on this website I knew this was the one I was looking for. Now having it for few weeks here is what I like and dislike about it.
Fittings 4/5: for the most part the fittings are decent the iron fittings with the bat theme l really like, the tsuba is decent but the itto wrap is not nearly tight enough. The black on black ray skin and itto wrap looks really nice.
Saya 2/5: honestly the saya is terrible, it looks nice but it barely even holds the tanto in and everything time you pull out the tanto it is covered with wood chips which I know will stop happening eventually but for me still hasn’t.
Blade and cutting performance 6/5: I know that a $70 ronin tanto won’t be quite as good at cutting as a $300 ronin dojo pro katana but it’s still insanely good at cutting. The blade has the sharpest tip of any knife I have ever owned and the overall blade is sharped well with niku. Cutting performance is unbelievable, my first cut with it went right through the water bottle effortlessly and after cutting ten water bottles and a gallon jug it hasn’t failed to cut through anything. With no skill I think is actually easier to cut through a water bottle with this then a katana because it’s easier to aim.
Over all I love this tanto and I am convinced that it is the best tanto you can possibly buy for less than $100 and I doubt that anyone will be proving me wrong. Get it you won’t regret it.
