ANBU Tanto by Logan-Pearce ANBU Tanto by Logan-Pearce
All Naruto styled and stuff.


Name: ANBU Tanto
Blade Length: 4 1/2"
OAL: 9"
Blade Material: 1080
Handle Material: Water Buffalo Horn


Someone asked me to be awesome and so I was. :O

Naw, I was commissioned by :iconclement-kwan: to make a tanto with the ANBU symbol from the anime Naruto on the knife. I decided to put the symbol where I usually put my name.

Since the ANBU symbol is where my name usually is, I put my stamp on the opposite side. All in all, it was a pretty fun knife to make. I don't make a whole lot of tantos and since Brittani has been wanting to learn how to make them, it was good all the way around.

I wish I could have spent a little more time on it, but since it was a b-day present, my time was limited even more than usual.

Obviously, I don't own the ANBU symbol.



Also, I probably need stitches. >.< I kind of cut through half of my thumb, before I had time to pull the unsharpened knife away. *sigh* I haven't really looked at it after all the blood and using....clear shipping tape to close the wound. :P I then went back to work, as usual. Now that I'm done for the day, I might be going to the hospital.

It would suck to lose a thumb. Anyway, it won't slow me down any. It will take a lot more than a nearly severed thumb to slow me down.

Ooooh, but I could totally put some nasty bloody pictures up now. Prove that I'm all manly and such. :meow:

Another beautiful work by Logan Pearce. This knife is gorgeous, the design is like riding a tour bus: It takes you to all the beautiful parts of the place, and skips the places that aren't worth seeing. The muted colors of this knife are also a rather nice touch. There is one thing though, where the scales (the wood pieces that go on the tang and form the handle) meet the "fuchi" or the bolster, it looks like the wood was damaged or scratched; but it's such a small thing that it barely affects the impact of this knife. It is also badass how Logan chopped off his thumb while making it. That just adds to the coolness.
What do you think?

It really Is a beautiful peice of work. I also hope it's on sale. But I love the black handle with the white pearl color at the top of the hilt I especially love the symbol you have engraved on it and if I'm correct it's a full tang blade. which rules very highley for most people who actually use knives. sturdy, durable, and it seems to have claimed its first amount of flesh from its maker lol , muy bien, my only thing is would your hand slide forward on the tanto? and what are the measurements? but all in all yet another beautiful peice Mr. Pearce
4.5/5

Oh, wow! What a beautiful blade! Too bad it didn't attack your thumb. Don't feel too bad, every time I do the dishes I stab myself with a steak knife. lol. :)

Nice piece, looks like your doing the 'blacksmiths' dip for edge hardening, if you are interested in using 'clay' to get a more traditional Japanese line, get some A.P. Green #36 Refactory cement and add a little finely ground firescale to it. . .

:iconlogan-pearce:
Logan-Pearce Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
I do that every once in a while, but I'm really not a traditionalist. My g/f on the other hand is and she has some that is clay hardened. Usually while teaching her I do the same techniques on one of my knives while she does it on hers. I'll probably be posting it next week, since it's actually a rebar knife I did it on. :P

But yeah, I'm a big fan of differential hardening. I love hamons, especially on 1080 since it looks black and W-2. But I usually don't bother with the clay. I hate to admit it, but I'm kind of lazy. lol.

That is a knife I would be very interested in having in my collection at some point.

I'm a sucker for Tanto tips. Do you ever do work in S30V or Hitachi Blue?

Me as well. I've never used either of those two. I heard S30V is good though.

maybe add a Gauntlets will be better,the handle made by Water Buffalo Horn is very smooth, if my hand are slide off when i was Puncture,it will be hurt,it's cool as a catoon and caricature periphery,but not a good design for a real knife

Hahaha...All manly and such? Was there any question? You *make* knives!!!

Either way, I hope you're thumb's okay.


The knife is quite amazing! I really am quite jealous of your skill. I think I could enjoy knife making...

Out of curiosity, I know you sell many of your knives, but how much does it cost to make them?

Yeah! I have to be a man's man! ;)

I'm doing much better now and thank you. It's really dirty work, if it wasn't for that and it being so hot here during the summer, besides just forging, it would be super awesome. But since it's dirty and hot, it's only kind of awesome. :D

My Remnant Knives are between $20-$75. Most of my custom work is $40-$100. And then my art knives are $300-$750.

Indeed, my friend will love it. Great work on the knife, waiting for it to arrive any day now.

Maybe I can add a legend how it was imbued with the maker's blood and all lol.

Thanks again.

while I dont actually consider this to be a tanto (Im a bit of a traditionalist :P ), it is a very nice knife :)
good proportions, nice finish & textures on the steel & a beautifully subtle gradient of color in the horn
