This review is from my former coworkers and I. I gifted them Katana and tanto's, we all love how its more efficient to work with swarovskis in nail art application. Time is money~
NEW AND IMPROVED FOR 2016!
Looking for a smaller tip or starter multi-media, pick-up tool? This is a smaller version of our best selling Patent Pending Crystal Katana. This comfortable pen shaped tool is compact and sharpenable!
An economical tool for blinging and bedazzling. A gentle touch of the synthetic wax tip picks up small, light items. Great for tiny ss3-ss9 flatback rhinestones, fancy cut, or chatons (pointed back stones) pp1-pp24. Please see our online videos, tutorials, helpful tips, tricks and other fine tools designed by the CrystalNinja team.
I have only had the new & improved Tanto. I am not having too much success with it. I have trouble picking up sequins and when trying to release them, I have to roll the pen to make it let go. -------------------- Understandable. Sequins can be tricky. They have mold release on them, but rolling the pen is exactly what needs to be done!

The slim tanto easily picks up flat back crystals, & allows precise placement. Excellent for my 3D Nail Art creations.
I ordered the Tanto because I figured the new and improved formula would be be better than the original. It tends to take multiple trys for me to pick up small stones. I have to wipe the point off often (after about every 3 to 5 stones) in order for it to continuously pick up stones for me. I do bling nails all the time and hardly ever get glue on the point so im trying to figure out why it looses grip so easily. This is my first purchase and though the Tanto is not working to well for me I will try purchasing the Original Crystal Ninja. Hopefully it works better for me.
I did take advantage of a recent sale to purchase this item and now I wonder why I waited. Gluing crystals without this tool is a P.I.T.A. - this system made it so much easier, and so much nicer looking. I may not be a CrystalNinja, but I am a much better CrystalElf than I was before this tool. Thanks for a great project.
I like the idea of the sharpener. The finer the point makes it easier to place those teeny tiny crystals.
The original Tanto was great, but the new and improved product is even better! Easy to sharpen, and simple to use. Fantastic for those tiny SS5 and SS6 Crystals! A perfect companion to my Crystal Katana.
If you use small crystals this is perfect for you. Works great, tips last a long time. It does come with some refills but I recommend buying extra with your purchase you will use it so much. Hope you like Cystals Ninja's products as much as I do.
