An everyday carry, this massive United Cutlery Honshu Tanto Knife is NOT, but it's a great blade for self defense or even hog hunting. The 10 3/4" massive, thick, full tang 440 stainless steel blade is razor sharp, and a deep blood groove spans the entire length. The overmolded, rubberized grip gives you supreme control, and the oversized stainless steel hand guard prevents your hand from slipping to the blade.

Expensive!

Knife is ok, sheath would be good except the knife does not go all the way in! MTech version is less than half the price and nearly as good!

Buy This Knife!

Such an excellent knife that I purchased two! I put it to you like this if there was ever a zombie apocalypse or long term civil unrest and I had only a split second to grab either this knife or a pistol.....I would chose this knife. My only two gripes about this knife are merely aesthetic and are of a personal preference. This knife was touted as having a tanto edge but my understanding is that the tip should have sharp angles not curves. Secondly, I hate shinny reflective blades. I wish they had made it in black. Nonetheless the blade is incredibly thick and seemingly indestructible. The grip feels superb and the pummel is on point thereby making both ends of this tool deadly.

So nice I am ordering a second one.

This is much more of a knife than I expected. It is so nice I am ordering a second one today after I finish writing the review. Hard to believe all this for the price. I have a habit of giving knives to family and friends; so I need another just in case.

Nic Tanto Knife

Just recieved two of these knifes, Very nice. In All my years of studying Martial Arts, Weapons were oftern included, my favorite were "Knives and Swords", with knives we were Always taught to fight with Two, another reason I buy in Two's at BUDK. These Blades are Well Worth the Money.

Larger and heavier than I had expected it to be, but very well built. It came in fairly quickly and pretty sharp (I've been practicing on plastic water filled bottles and get a clean cut all the way through.) The blood groove is nice and deep, and the blade is definitely full tang. This is one of the best knives I've ever owned and I am a very satisfied customer.

handle resolved

i bought this tanto after reading all the reviews. they complained about the handle. i found the same. weird hilt. and because i am parafrog, i found the answer to the riddle. you do not grasp this thing as if it were a knife--the handle is to long to flip it like most fixed blades--and that is because it was not designed to be held like a knife. this tanto is designed to be held in a fencing grip. how? follow my instructions. put the blade in your grip with your thumb running along atop the handle--the thumb running in a center line through the wrist--with the tip of the the thumb touching the guard. while leaving the thumb in place--wrap the fingers around the handle. you should find your hand in a fencing grip, with the fleshy part of the palm nestling in the curved cut out on the end of the pommel. and that is it. move your thumb as needed. during a thrust, leave it on top to help prevent slippage. during the slash, move the thumb away from the palm, and wrapped more around the handle--to increase wrist flexibility. solved. don't applaud--just send cash. frog.

Very Impressed

Out of the 4 knives I purchased in this last order, the honshu was the cheapest but one of my favorites. It feels very well made, looks great in stainless, and is much bigger than I thought it would be in person.! It's like a mini sword. The rubber grip feels great too. The sheath is almost worth the price. Well made,thick leather, unlike the sheaths of many cheaper knives I have purchased. I'd buy another if I ever had the need to replace this one.

The price is great. The blade is well made and has a good balance to it. Also like the grip. It comes very sharp. Nice! Second Honshu knife. Won't be the last.

I don't know whether to call this a knife or a short sword. Well whatever category you want to fit this in, only one thing remains: This weapon is totally badass. The blade is sharp right out of the box, the rubber grip along with the feel of the full tang is amazing, and it can do some serious damage. I totally recommend this to ANY collector of weapons; whether you collect blades, guns, or any kind of combination in between, you need to have this in your collection. Total 5 out of 5. No contest.

Buy this knife!

For this price you can't go wrong. When I first got this blade I did a few chop and cut test. Pretty sharp right out the box but after a bit of manipulating this thing become deadly. It's more mini sword like than knife like, so it really only has one purpose. To slash and stab things with. BudK has some great promotions and discounts so if you can get this thing with a discount or free shipping its definitely worth it. BudK's customer service is great too, when I ordered mine it was on backorder, but I received it only a week later. Top class!

tlery Honshu Tanto Knife

Great for Florida Hog hunting. I like the stainless steel, no rust with all the rain we get you just cant beat it. I have the original that this is the copy of paid $130 for it but it is carbon steel and started to rust after one hunting trip. You just cant go wrong with this. Its not like you need carbon steel for this size, A sword yes, but this is great for Hunting.

this is a great knife!!!

You won't be disapointed with this fine quality knife, it would still be a great value at 3 times the price. This is my second "Honshu" knife, I also own the "Bowie" . I would recomend this to anyone who loves collecting knives, and I'm sure I'm not finished buying "Honshu" knives. Excellent quality!!!!!

Nice Blade

I just got this knife and have to agree with Mitch's 2 points. I read this before buying it and got it anyway when the deals, etc lined up to make it cheaper. I am glad the Honshu line is giving us a lower priced version of a lot of the Cold Steel blades -can't afford CS and unless you are a collector, then why not. The handle does get smaller toward the end and it really does feel like it could slide right out of the hand - nothing a little hockey tape can't fix. I would also like the handle to be a little longer, but that is just me. I did buy it in hopes that it might be a good as a mini sword and it isn't bad for that, but could be a little longer for this and again the handle thing comes into play. I get the sense that if used to thrust deep, the length of the blade in relation to the shortness of the handle would provide torque that could take it right out of your hand. The double edged dagger/fighter is perfect for thrusting and great handle on that one. I got this as a mini sword for slashing in closer quarters - not a CQC blade for really in tight though and knew from the review about the limitations of the handle. Got it for much less with the deals though so ok with it all and would recommend it as long as you know what it is you are getting and are ok with that. Hate most of the Honshu sheaths! If you can only get 1 or 2, then go for the double edged dagger and the Karambit!

Good quality, poor design

The blade is thick and strong, and the handle is sturdy. However, I have two complaints with the shape of this piece. 1) The tapered handle feels like it will fly out of your hand. Especially if you're doing any sort of wrist work where you need to grasp the blade mostly with thumb and forefinger, this handle is shaped just right to wedge its way out of your hand. 2) In my opinion, 17" is a bad length for a knife. I wish I'd learned this on a cheaper blade. It's too short for machete work or to do any real slashing damage in combat, but its length makes it more cumbersome than an 11" blade which could pierce just as well. No complaints with the quality at all, and I would definitely buy more from the Honshu series. But, before you drop $40 on a blade, spend some time really picturing how it will fit and feel in your hand when in use.

Great knife - bought 3!!

This is a great knife. My son also bought this product. It is well made and fits the hand perfectly. The only suggestion I would make to improve this product is to provide a wakisashi and a katana of the same design. I realize stainless steel is not the original metal used in these types of cutlery, but for our day....it works for me. Being a machinist, I can appreciate the quality of material and the design maybe a little better than most.

United cutlery tanto

I just received this knife a couple days ago and really all I could say was "WOW this knife is huge".to me this is kinda like a small katana in my hands.the blade is sharp and the handle gave my hand a firm and unbreakable grip.

This thing is marvelous! Beautiful and darn near razor sharp! I love the length, and the grip is really nice and grippy. The sheath is very nice too, its sturdy and the belt loop thing seems like its attached firmly.

5/5, I recommend this to anyone after a good (and large) knife.

Honshu Tanto Knife

This is a great knife for the price. The fit and feel of the knife is excellent. The blade is nicely polished and of the right length. When you pick up the weapon it is solid in your hand. As someone already stated the sheath is poorly designed and the snap is hard to work UNTIL you use it for awhile and then it will function better. It is still too easy to slice through it. I'm happy I bought the knife and would again.
