Tanto by Logan-Pearce Tanto by Logan-Pearce
Ebony Tanto

I forgot to actually measure the knife before I sent it off, but it should be around 10-11". I've been trying to keep my tanto blades at least 6 inches long, since they don't technically count as a tanto if the blade isn't at least 6 inches long. Not that I really go by traditional or any one else's guidelines. I do like the blade being that long though.

The next knives that I'll have to show you guys, should be pretttttyy awesome looking. There may or may not be an Avatar being finished up. :la:

I'm excited. lol

Sleek, simplistic, and looks as if it's balanced like a dream. It really is lovely work.

Well imo you got a awsome blade there but the handle is not matching the blade in my eye.I guess a little carving or engraving on the black part of the handle would match the pattern of the blade or just using a different material on black part might be a good idea. Anyways what would i know, all i can say is black part of handle looks too plastic is all. :)

At a glance it looked like a kitchen knife.

Simple and elegant lines. Classic geometry. The materials you chose give it a color set I find very appealing, not flashy, no nonsense, just very utilitarian looking. The finish on the blade's rough, good for concealment in that the matte surface inhibits the reflection of light, but also can leave the knife feeling sorta unfinished. Grind on the kissaki looks fat, strong for piercing, I like how you kept the facets on your grind tight and sharp, clean angles.

Is the darker region along the cutting edge from doing a variable temper?
What have you decided with regards to the sheath/saya? I love traditional styled wooden sheaths on knives like this.

Nice presentation color wise, I like the blue splotchy paint.
Did you make the "Pearce" stamp you use on your blades? I love that touch, classy.
Excellent work again.
