Long tanto?

I did this out of a rail anchor.  Blades 15, over all around 21.  COB is 3 inches in front of the guard.   Has a nice taper from the guard forward.   This has the best grind lines I've done yet, my first brass guard,  and the shortest amount of time from when I first lit the forge to completion.   Usually stuff gets set aside for a while on  flat surface covered in other projects.

It's a nice looking short sword.  Not exactly what I would have in mind for a tanto.  Maybe something Eastern European.  If it wasn't for the guard I might think of it being carried by a Cossack.
