Classical Tanto - notice the more rounded, less aggressive shape. Probably, the reason why the modern knifemakers called their fighting knives “tantos” was to invoke the exotic mystique of feudal Japan. You might be old enough to remember that was a huge craze for ninjas and samurais in the 80s. In sum, the typical Japanese tanto is simply a general-purpose knife, whereas the “American tanto” is specifically designed for piercing through armor, heavy clothing or bone.
