Knife in Pieces

  • With nickel bolsters and pins, red G10 liners, and layered black and gray G10 handle scales, he'll make a handle so striking, he can barely handle it
  • He'll whisper "domo arigato" as he gazes upon the razor-sharp, AUS-8 stainless steel, full-tang blade.
  • No self-respecting warrior carries a bare blade under his kimono. Precisely why we've included a custom-molded kydex sheath and paracord wrap.
  • The extensive assembly guide will serve as his all-knowing sensei in his quest to craft the ultimate tactical tanto.

    This is my second knife kit from ManCrates. I built a folding knife last year; I received the Tactical Tanto this year as a Christmas gift this year.

    This one is definitely more challenging to assemble - that's part of the fun!

    After I finished the project, I built a custom display stand to tactically showcase this fine item.

    Thanks again ManCrates!

    The first one kit I received had a small fault, however after calling the customer service they sent me an entirely new kit, the second time around every thing was perfect down to every detail. This is a great company with great people
