(Video Review – Click Read More For Full Article Including Video)
If there is one tool that I’m always excited to update it’s my knives. Being an avid outdoors enthusiast, hiker and backpacker your tool is arguably your most precious tool. I’ve had the enjoyment of using the Satori Tanto knife from Three Circle Knives for the past few months and I must say it is a solid blade and one that I will be keeping in my backpack for years to come. From the unboxing of the knife to the field, I have been so impressed with this knife that I was giddy to film a video review. I generally use products for 2-6 months before recording or writing a review so I have been patiently using and abusing this fine piece of craftsmanship in the interim.
The Satori Tanto knife is forged from 440c .25″ steel and is cerakoted in black (also called “shadow”) and the handle is wrapped in a desert camo 550 paracord forming a comfortable grip around the handle. Some obligatory specs for the blade from the Three Circles Website:
- 12″ overall, 6.5″ blade Tanto
- Cerakote in Black
- .25″ thick 440C Steel
- Kydex Sheath
- Multiple Carry Options: Paracord or MOLLE Clip Paracord Options for handles: Black, Coyote Tan, Olive Drab, Gray, Maroon, Military Green
This knife has accompanied me on enough hiking day trip and overnight adventures to prove itself beyond the limits of what I use it for. The primary purpose for a knife while I’m camping is to cut down dead wood for firewood, shelter building, cutting rope, prying and just general purpose protection. Three Circle Knives also includes a custom kydex sheath with all of their knives. The sheath is included with 6 holes and additional paracord to use for carrying in multiple configurations. Below is a gallery from their website for the different methods of carry.
Overall I’d highly recommend Three Circle Knives, they are crafted here in the USA and the company is operated by a lovely couple who has an amazing philosophy behind the naming and style of their blades.

Value for value this a first rate knife and encourage anyone in the market for a tactical or survival knife to consider the Satori Tanto. Check out their site and pick one up today.
