Steel Framelock Pocket Knives

The New Kihon Stainless Tanto Pocket Knife is Sleek and Elegant

— March 12, 2018 — Art & Design
Accessory company Tanto created a new Kihon Stainless Tanto pocket knife, the third of a series made in collaboration with designer Lucas Burnley. The brand is known for creating high-quality products that will last a lifetime and this new knife is a perfect example of that.

The new knife is made from 100% stainless steel and is inspired by classic Japanese-style blades. This new take on the modern Tanto pays tribute to the classic pocket knife with a soft angle blade, making it portable yet more practical than ever. The elegant design makes this product look less violent and intimidating, choosing a softer shape than the typical pocket knife.

With a 3.3-inch blade, the Kihon Stainless Tanto pocket knife is lightweight with a frame lock handle for maximum safety and simple usability.
