O-Goncho // Tanto // Golden Bird
From the Asuka Series comes this intricately hand crafted O-Goncho (White Dragon) Tanto. Hand forged using the Maru-kitae technique from 1060 steel, the result is a beautiful and resilient blade with Gunome style hamon pattern.
The beautiful red saya depicts O-Goncho which is a fierce white Japanese dragon that lives in a deep pool named Ukisima. Every fifty years O-Goncho is known to rise from the deep pond to cry out with the howl and screech of a wolf. In that year, tremendous famine spreads.
The Tanto in 16th century culture was used as a "harakiri" weapon if the Samurai Warrior brought shame to their Family name. In popular culture today the Tanto is used for self defense and for home décor. The design of the tanto blade is also very popular as a tactical knife. This traditional style tanto is a work of art with the perfect balance of elegance and functionality.
