A tantō is simply a small katana. Several chūnin, medical-nin and shinobi of Konohagakure when going into battle wear them strapped to their lower backs. The version Root uses are double-edged and have no tip, meant only for cutting and defence. They carry the tantō vertically on the back specifically behind the shoulder, Sai is one of the notable ones that uses the tantō, which he carries on his back behind the right shoulder. Sakumo and Kakashi Hatake — after inheriting it — carried a special tantō, known as the White Light Chakra Sabre. Gamabunta and Gamakichi also carry these, albeit gigantic versions that fit their size.
