With a thick and narrow blade, this tanto is known as a Yoroi Doshi, armor piercer.  It was meant to work between the gaps of armor during grappling or other close combat.

It is mounted in black lacquer aikuchi (no guard) fittings.

It is signed Ietsugu, though this signature is likely gimei (a forgery). 

Please note the kitae ware.
