Our Wolf Tanto models are Ground "HIRANIKU" style.
Meaning: The edge surfaces of Japanese swords are convex or "bevel" ground.
They can be finely bevelled or heavily bevelled, that is, less or more rounded in profile.
The Japanese concept for this is "Hiraniku" and literally means "edge or surface meat".
Hiraniku is an important characteristic of Japanese swords.
A sword with good "meat" (Niku) has a robust and strong edge. In blades with little or no hiraniku, the edge is weaker. The degree of Hiraniku largely dictates the blades cutting power.
