    DOJO PRO 1060 STEEL TANTO #5

    Very good quality for the price. I had never bought anything like this before and was surprised at how nice it is for $75 total. Everything is tight and nothing has fallen off or anything after light testing. I think its cool, would recommend.

    A steal at the sale price

    I bought this sale-priced tanto expressly for customizing, so my criteria might be different from yours. That said, I've bought 2 tanto and 2 shinken from Ronin, and I've been perfectly happy with them. I believe these sale tanto are returns from unsatisfied customers. If so, I'm not sure why this one was returned. The blade has a bit of play in the saya, but the habaki fit is firm. The blade itself has two very minor scratches. That's it. It could be sharper and it could be polished brighter. The latter is easily fixed with some Peek/Flitz/Mother's Mag & Aluminum. I'll probably strop the edge, but that's it. Fittings are decent quality and tight. The samegawa is rayskin and well fitted. The tsuka ito could be tighter, but I'm probably going to replace it anyway. FWIW, ito on my previous Ronin purchases (including one sale-priced shinken & one sale-priced tanto) has been fairly well wrapped. As with my previous tanto review, even though fit & fittings are good, you're really buying this for the blade. You could easily pay twice as much for half as good, so for $70, you can't go wrong.

    Dojo Pro 1060 Steel Tanto #5

    You get what you are paying for. The money went mostly into the blade, it is sharp and well put together. The tsuka and saya are made of “cheap”materials but it is to be expected at this price point.

    Put all the fittings are tight with no rattle and the blade looks excellent

    There was some glue residue and one of the pegs wasn’t flush and peeled up a little bit of the ray skin but overall very nice

    Great blade and fittings from a great company

    Ronin Katana continues to impress. The Tanto #5 I received was everything I expected it to be. Tight attractive fittings, beautiful sharp blade. Since I got it on sale, feeling even better about it and trying to figure out why I'm not buying two or three more while I'm at it. They shipped it out literally the same day I ordered it and I have found Ronin Katana to be a real joy to work with at every turn. Well done!
