  • 7 5/8" AUS-6 stainless steel blade
  • Blade thickness: 1/8"
  • Overmolded hard plastic handle
  • Stainless steel hand guard

This massive, military-style tanto knife is a great blade for self defense and tactical situations. The razor sharp 7 5/8" AUS-6 stainless steel blade will stay sharper, longer than those cheap sub-par steel blades, and the piercing tanto point provides deep target penetration for thrusting applications. It also has an overmolded hard plastic handle with a stainless steel hand guard. A black leather belt sheath is included.

It's a sturdy knife.

This was a gift from my cousin. I don't know how long he had it, but I do know he's hard on his knifes. It had many scratches and a few nicks on the blade, but still easy to rehone the edge. I've had it a few years and it's held up very well. The blade holds a decent edge and won't bend no matter what I do. It's also easy to resharpen. The pummel screws off so if the handle breaks you can replace it.

BUDK Tanto- A-Okay!

This is a very good, solid, sturdy tando from BUDK. For the price, the knife is great and has held up against serious use. Highly recommend for someone looking for a cool and useful tanto.

Good value

Been looking for this type of knife, and when it cam out I grabbed it. Cant beat the price for the quality of the blade and sheath. I already have a nice sheath for this so it didn't matter. Like I said cant beat the price.

Good for the price

I really like this knife, it has a nice quality blade, great slip resistant handle and very affordable, the only problem I have with it is the sheath other than that, this is a very nice knife.

Ugly but tough

Aside from sheath being garbage this a solid knife in fact if you like being stabby mc'stab stab this is the $7 stabber you want cause while it is a very effective "stabber" you gonna have to sharpen it. I heard butter knives were shaming it from the drawer.

Holy Guacamole

For the price, this knife is far above flea market junk. It's a solid blade. With a garboj sheath. I'll say that right away. If it had a better sheath, it would get 5 stars automatically. I'm still giving 5 because the knife itself is a great toolbox knife for the value. I bought 2 and gave 1 to a friend. I wish that I had kept the second one, screw my generosity. There is no other $7 fixed blade that is like this. At first glance (not counting the sheath), it could pass for a .... uhm... Chilly Steel. For the money? Who cares? It beats anything within the price range, and it takes a decent edge.

Nice knife

I bought this knife for two reasons. 1, I really dig the tanto style knives and 2, it was only $7. After receiving the knife, I was really disappointed with the sheath. It’s a thin cheaply made vinyl that probably wouldn’t hold on a belt through a days worth of work. The blade itself is nice and thick and comes fairly sharp out of the box but could use a good sharpening. Now the guard and pommel are chrome plated and look cheap. It takes away from the knife and even seems to bubble on some areas. The overmolded handle has a diamond type pattern that is slip resistant but is made of a hard plastic so it doesn’t really feel as great in the hand as other similar knives would. For the price though, you get a lot of knife that would be good for the tool box, tackle box or even for display. I’d buy a new sheath and sharpen it right away.

Just Buy One

If you are even thinking about it, buy one. Then when you get it, check it out, use it, then come back and buy more. I now have 7. Under $10, even better on sale, and they make just a great beater knife if nothing else. Tough, Tough, Tough. I'm about to sacrifice one with a tear in my eye to try some modifications on it. A 7 5/8 inch long blade has a lot of possibilities. Better get some before prices rise or they quit making them!!! Thanks as always BudK!

Very cool knife!

I’ve been wanting this knife for a long time! Now that I have it, I’m totally happy with it. After you put a good edge on it, it’s completely awesome!

Nice knife.

I got these (2) on closeout for about $10 each, if you include shipping and everything. They are a long, slightly back curved 7.5" (19 cm) blade with a Tanto style point. The handle is a rubber-like material that feels like rubber checkering. The handle must be attached under the grips because I can't see rivets or screws and the handle pommel is shiny but not chromed. You can see the handle was polished (Stainless?) and has a few waviness in it with a few small pits but they DO NOT lokk like rust was removed. Most likely casting flaws. Blade is separate and looks like different metal finish. Looks "brushed" on a buffer, not shiny at all. The sheath with the 'black leather" is lined with what looks like felt (Huh?) which I'm sure will be great at holding moisture for maximum rusting. It's so flimsy though if hang it from a belt I'm almost positive it will split apart so you won't feel bad tossing it in the trash. Other wise for a $11(shipped) knife it looks good. I'm not sure carrying it around if you find some sort of generic sheath to fit it would go over too well with the local law enforcement . With a seven and a half inch blade (19 CM) it is a bit intimidating to the average person on the street. I think the cheap sheath will hold up if you sore it in a tool box like I intend too. I keep it coated with 500 cST silicone oil ($20 on Amazon) which will soak into the "felt" lining on the sheath and stop it from rusting. Just remember industrial silicone oil doesn't break down without soap (Dawn dish washing is best) and water and is toxic to fish AND kills the bacteria in your septic tank if it gets built up. It lasts forever and laughs at water. All you need is to touch your finger to it and rub it around. if you are using more than 2 tiny drops at a time you are using to much!! It will protect most any non-rusted metal from corrosion (Except sea water, that rots everything eventually) and your knife(s), or tool(s), or sword(s) will look good as new. especially in storage! Just wipe the metal or synthetic rubber off or use like Windex to clean it off non-metal or a rag with metal to remove the oil because it is super slick!!
