The Tanto Limited Edition pays homage to the Japanese samurai, who served men of royalty and nobility in historical Japanese culture. A tanto is a traditional Japanese short sword, used mainly as protection for self-defense and close-quarters combat.
Each Tanto is hand-polished by Japanese craftsmen with detail and precision using the Hirame-ji technique. It has an ebonite barrel, coated with fine Japanese Urushi lacquer. Completed with a calfskin leather-wrapped cap that is adorned with two sterling silver *Manuki* pins on each side. The Tanto Hirame-ji wood fountain pen has a two-tone 14k gold nib.
