The name of this type of knives comes from the shortest samurai sword, a type of Tanto, which was valued for its compactness. In ancient times they were very popular to be worn permanently by women, doctors and traders. Now they are ideal for working with meat (steaks). It is easy to use, fits easily in the hand and has a very confident cut, typical for carbon steels.

The knife looked decent when it arrived. After a few uses, it is rusting and the wood handle has dulled. I didn't realize they were more of a decoration piece.
All my knives are fully functional. But they require care and maintenance! It's Carbon Steel and it rusts. Just like most Japanese knives. The handle is made of Heat-treated Ash and is oil-soaked. Of course, these knives don't wash in the washer and leave in the damp.
