great tanto Reviewed by Philip Einwechter on Apr 17, 2015   5 out of 5

This is a great tanto for the price

Get Two Reviewed by Jeremiah on Apr 14, 2015   4 out of 5

This budget tanto is a lot of knife for the money. I decided to grab these during a recent bogo sale and very happy overall. is it perfect, no. while the sheath is a decent leather the strap supposed to secure the handle is not well designed. the handguard pushes against the fit and makes it very difficult to snap secure. At this price point thats not too important. Both of the knives i recieved were very sharp. blade is thicker than i anticipated on the spine and that is a good thing in my opinion considering the length. The handle is ok, in my opinion a little slippery. overall a great buy as a collectible, training, and potentially a tool that could protect you or your family.

A Great Addition to My Collection Reviewed by Dan Moore on Jan 07, 2015   5 out of 5

I ordered this with one of the sales discounts. I had looked at it for sometime. I was impressed with some of the video reviews of this knife. It has a nice feel to it. It is not a cheap knife. This is a value added knife in my opinion. A great combat knife in a dagger mode - made for stabbing. The blade was sharp. This will not disappoint.

Awesome Blade Reviewed by Andre Jitta on Oct 27, 2013   5 out of 5

I have both versions of the blade and I love the black one more. I love how it look and it's also a tough blade. The grip is nice and textured for good grip. It comes sharp enogh to cut paper but it could be sharpened even more if need to. I am very happy with this blade. I know it's only 440 but is well made and I am sure the tempering treatment is far better than other budget knives.

United Honshu Tanto Black Knife Reviewed by Aenigma on Jun 16, 2012   5 out of 5

This blade is awesome. Strong light balanced and is a true killing tool. Might be useful for some light bush craft, but the weight is perfect for combat and that's how it fits in my system. A simple adjustment of the sheath allows fast draw. The sheath is not well designed in regards to this style guard. By snapping the retainer on the belt loop side the blade will catch and not release w/o a firm draw. Have heard that this is a budget knife. Have found it to be one of the best I have purchased at any price. Highly recommend this one.

Cool knife mostly Reviewed by Kevin Gillihan on Apr 25, 2012   4 out of 5

Got it in the mail yesterday and man is it huge!! Mine didn't come all that sharp but I can fix that with a little time. Love the shape, handle and non-glare finish. My only concern is that the hilt has some noticeable play in it. Not sure if I should return it or not.

great buy Reviewed by Timothy Roberts on Apr 13, 2012   5 out of 5

My first impression when I pulled this blade out of the box was "woah, this is huge!". the size of the knife is incredible, and it came out incredibly sharp. The full tang really adds to the feel of the whole blade. I heard a lot of complaint about the handle, but personally, I like it. A great buy, must get.

United Honshu Tanto Black Knife Reviewed by THOMAS RICE on May 14, 2011   5 out of 5

I love the length of this blade. I am buying another one, only this time, it will be the steel version, not the black. Like the blade overall, but handle feels odd, perhaps the slippery aspect to the handle. None of the factory oil for the blade dripped onto the handle, it is just made of a weird to the touch textured rubber. Not saying it should give me blisters, but a better grip feel would be nice. The only other aspect to this blade would be a sheath that didn't have an automatic hand guard catch built in. The sheath is nice, thick, well constructed, and I'm sure that other knife fighters like myself will agree, that the button clasp should have been mounted behind the leather, not closest to the surface by the hole. It catches the cross guard too easy. I still give it a hefty 5 points as most of the cons are based on functional preference.

United Honshu Tanto Knife.....black anodized. Reviewed by thenighthawk on Apr 23, 2011   5 out of 5

I am very pleased with this knife. I purchased the other version and wanted a low reflectivity knife for night carry so I purchased this knife based on the quality and usefulness of the aforementioned knife.
