    Uses of Tanto:

    1. Traditional Martial Arts Training: antojutsu: This is the martial art that focuses on the use of the tanto. Techniques usually involve thrusting, slashing, and countering movements.
    2. Weapon of the Samurai: In Feudal Japan, the tanto was often part of the samurai's daisho (pair of weapons). The samurai would carry a long sword (katana) and a short sword - the wakizashi or the tanto.
    3. Home Décor: A tanto can be used as a decorative item, often displayed in a box or a small stand. They combine appreciation for the blade's aesthetic and historical value.
    4. Cosplay and Festivals: Tantos are often part of the costume in cosplaying, especially for characters in anime, manga, or samurai films. They're also used in festivals, often in dance performances or parades.
