Story

Martial Arts and Crafts

The Heian period in Japan resulted in tons of incredible art, poetry, and literature. Oh yeah, and also one of the most badass blades in human history—the Tanto, a Japanese short sword used in traditional martial arts.

Paying homage to the tactical, ornate style of this distinctive weapon, the Tactical Tanto Knife Making Kit is a must-have for the knife enthusiast looking to level up from beginner build-a-blade projects.

Summon his inner samurai with the Tactical Tanto Knife Making Kit, a classic short sword that’s long on valor. 

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.

    Definitely Recommended

    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!

    Excellent

    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

    Kind of Disappointing

    Part of the fun of a "mancrate" is it coming in a crate to open. There's no reason to pay over $13 for shipping a boring, regular box.

    Man Crates Response: We are so sorry to hear you are disappointed that your order did not come in a crate. We do have a few items that we sell which do not come in crates. The crates are our the base of our brand and excellent gifts. However, we choose not to limit such glorious gift-giving to just wooden boxes. We offer other legendary gifts such as our: fresh-from-the-front-lines Ammo Cans, or our insanely-delicious JerkyGrams, and most recently our line of (If-You Want-Something-Done-Right-You-Have-To-) DIY project kits.

    We do try our best to make it clear that certain items do not come in crates. Repeatedly on the site we make mention of this, specifically under the "add to cart" button we have written "This product ships in a box " as well as including a picture of how the item ships. In the product description we also have listed "Delivered: In an awesome cardboard box" shown on the page. On the cart page before you process your order we have also included this message and another picture of how the items ships as well. Sorry if you missed any or all of these signals, we've done our best to try and give you a heads up!


    We’re sorry for any confusion resulting from the purchase that was thought to be coming in a crate. As always, we have a very generous return policy and if you wish you can return the item for a complete refund for any reason.

    The bottom line is, we're not happy until you're happy, please let us know if there's anything I can do to turn this around! Also, please let us know if you would like to start up a return or if there is anything else I can help with. Feel free to give us a call at 866-902-7260 or drop us a line at guys@mancrates.com. Have a good one!

    -Team Man Crates
