"Honestly, I'm a huge fan because Medieval collectables represents a rise in LARP culture in the US. That we can have a store devoted to such a huge variety of garb, costume, props, weapons, etc., that manages to stay afloat and is based in my home state is just huge and awesome. It's always the high point of my excitement at the Gencon dealer's hall and the place I always ask for gift cards from for birthdays and the like.'I've really had a lot of very cool stuff come from your store and I wish you guys all the best in expanding and continuing!"

Japanese Tantos

The functional Japanese tanto is a Japanese dagger, strictly one with a guard and has all of the fittings used on swords. The Japanese tanto blade rarely exceeds 12 inches in length and usually accompanying a katana. The Japanese tanto is constantly carried and not being left at the door when paying a visit. The tanto is much more decorated and has unusual fittings than the larger swords. The Japanese tanto was designed primarily as a stabbing instrument, but the edge can be used to slash as well. Japanese tantos were mostly carried by samurai, but commoners did not generally carry them. Women sometimes carried a small tanto called a kaiken in their obi for self defense. Medieval Collectibles carries many fully functional Japanese tantos that are authentic in detailing and construction.
