High quality hand forged high carbon steel tanto, the term koyo refers to the autumnal colour of leaves, highly depicted on the solid saya, and richly lacquered in black. The nakago (full) tang tsuka is held together by one bamboo mekugi (peg). A subtle curve to the hand forged high carbon steel blade keeps the theme of this tanto simple and elegant.
