Honey Badger’s frictionless opening and closing action, facilitated by two opposing roller bearings containing a total of 18 ball bearings, very few knives ever achieve such an immaculate action, and makes using them a real pleasure.
Inspired by the short armour piercing swords used by Samurai in feudal Japan, this blade shape replaces a curved belly for an angular edge transition that makes for a much stronger and prominent point. That durable tip and strong robust point make it good for piercing tough objects. While most modern uses of a tanto do not carry over from the traditional use as an armour puncturing tool they can still be used to great effect on day to day tasks.

Second one I bought in large tanto, adding to the large and medium drop point HB I already have. Quality above standard for price range and the after market G10 scales are excellent and gives a more solid, well made feel to the knife.
Whole HB range worth every cent.
Wonderful knife, super smooth action straight out the box. As per usual…amazing service from The Knife Guy.
