Japanese knives were typically called tantos and could be used in close-quarters combat, martial arts, ceremonial acts, or in modern times, as tactical knives. The Japanese tanto knife came about during the Heian period in feudal Japan. It was created primarily as a stabbing weapon but the tanto blade could also be used for slashing. It was worn mostly by samurai but sometimes women wore them in their obi for self-defense. During the Kamakura period, tanto blades were crafted to be more aesthetically pleasing and gained popularity.
