Dojo Pro 1060 Steel Tanto #1
- Calculated at Checkout
I didn't know what to expect at this price range and I don't usually go by other reviews but it looked like a pretty good blade so I took a chance on it. After receiving it I looked at this Tanto closely and really couldn't find anything wrong with it. It actually came out of the box very sharp. After taking the handle off, which was pretty difficult, I simply had to do some filing and cleaning up of the tang to get the proper fit. Not as bad as I've had to do on some swords. Overall I am very impressed with the quality of the Ronin Tanto. All of the Dojo Pro fittings are much better quality than the equally priced competitors and this Tanto is no exception. I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about getting one. I hope my next one is just as good as this one is.
Blade didn't arrive very sharp, but that can be fixed. Other than that, I am satisfied with my purchase. Excellent craftsmanship for the price!
I am really very impressed with this tanto. For the Price is is really nice. Beautiful piece to the collection. It came very sharp and all the fittings are very tight except the ito which could be considerablt tighter. The saya, scabbed, is also quite nice and the tanto fits in very snug, but not so tight that it is hard to draw. Would highly recommend.
I love my new Tanto, very beautiful blade.
First off I would like to start off by saying I own 2 Ronin Tanto's and 5 dojo Pro Katana's and without question they are by far the best Katana's and Tanto's available anywhere at this price point. You won't find anything close until you hit the $500-$600 mark and even those don't always have a Saya as nice as the Ronin. So now onto the review. Everything was packed nicely and arrived quickly. The customer service is flawless Ronin Katana is truely a first class customer service based company. The blade was flawless and very sharp. The ito wrap is very tight and we'll wrapped with the diamond pattern being nice and even. The tanto fits snuggly in the Says with no rattle, it stays in the Saya even when held upside down. The Ronin Dojo Pro series continues to impress me. I have not received a bad one yet. The quality at this price point for the Tanto's and Katana's are something other vendors can only dream of. I also own a SBG custom T10 katana and a Rjujin DH 1060 katana although both are nice and I love my SBG custom katana but neither can compete when it comes to what you get from Ronin for the price. Choose Ronin Katana you can't go wrong.
Fine workmanship. Good-looking. Completes a set,
Blade surprisingly thin near habaki...
non alternating wrap-c'mon ...

You won't find a tanto of this quality anywhere at this price. It ticks all the boxes, with the carbon steel, excellent fit, no play at the tsuka, very sharp, beautiful saya, well executed grinds & fuller, balance...I think I will go ahead and order the other 2!
I love this! I love this! I feel that my tanto #1 is about as perfect as you can get for a tanto at this price range and even a few times more expensive. The point of balance is 1.25 inches ahead of the tsuba and gives a "good" feel to the tanto in your hand. There are no manufacturing marks on the blade or hardware at all. The diamond shaped blade tip is evenly made and should provide exceptional thrusting/piercing performance. No wobble or play what-so-ever with the tsuba & seppa. The diamonds on the tsuka are next to absolute perfect--the best I've seen on any Japanese style blade coming out of China and that's no exaggeration! The saya is very smooth & black. No buffalo horn here, but everything is neatly executed. This beauty is just plain flawless in my opinion and I definitely received my monies worth from Ronin Katana. The Number 1 is a steal at twice the price.
