Product is a hand made knife. All measurements and weights approximate.
Mostly we make an OGA Tanto for military purposes. It has a smaller handle and the blade is less wide. This tanto has the larger, more comfortable PEW handle and a wider, heavier blade. The thought is you can use it for longer because of the handle and because the weight of the knife will do more of the work (so you save muscle effort).
This knife has a "Persuader" on the rear, which is made from the tang and bolsters. It is wider than our glass breaker and not intended for use as such.
Things to Consider Before Ordering:
1) Check with your local laws to determine the legality of all items ordered. Seller is not responsible for any items seized by customs or other authorities and will not knowingly make shipments to countries where any items are illegal. By placing an order, you are representing that you are an adult, the product(s) ordered are lawful in your local jurisdiction and that you will use the products in compliance with all applicable laws. You accept full responsibility and costs for all customs fees and VAT. Seller will not replace or refund any item confiscated by local authorities or customs agents.
2) These are handmade. There will be slight imperfections on most handmade work commensurate with its pricing.
3) Plain Language Disclaimer: Knives are inherently dangerous. Glass breakers are also very dangerous to the user and should be used only in cases of life or death, in a manner that avoids exposing the arm or hand to the broken glass after penetration (strike near the edge so the window frame blocks ingress), and with protective gear. Swords with sharp edges are for display only and should not be used for martial arts training. Even blunt swords are dangerous. You agree that you won't sue the Seller, designer or maker for anything related to using this product for any reason whatsoever and you (and we) really mean it!
4) Do not store knife in leather sheath long term because the chemicals in leather can corrode/tarnish metal.
