Tanto Premium Divot Tools Ready for Golfers

by | Mar 14, 2022 | PRO SHOP

How many times do you walk on the green and find ball marks in the path of your ball to the cup?  Why don’t other golfers realize that by leaving these marks everyone who plays after them, has to deal with the multitude of marks that will ruin the smoothness of the green? I play a lot of golf at my club where most of the members play one of the two courses we have multiple times of the week, but still refuse to fix their ball marks. Is it the aging of the 55-and-over crowd or just plain laziness? Tanto has the perfect easy-to-use repair tool to fix those aggravating ball marks. Made from stainless steel and titanium, Tanto premium divot repair tools are individually crafted and available at

Tanto’s first-generation divot tool, the Classic T ($44.99), features blades made from high-quality stainless steel, while the forks receive a black titanium powder coating which gives added strength and durability. The tool offers high tension springs to prevent jamming and a Teflon washer for a smoother open/close mechanism. The handles are made of an extremely strong and durable fiberglass composite material that must be sculpted individually. The Classic T is offered in black, features a solid belt clip and a stronger magnet to keep your ball marker on you at all times. The Tanto name comes from the fork of the tool that is very similar to the Tanto blades used as early as the 10th Century.


Tanto Mini

The new Tanto Mini ($39.99), the latest addition to the product line, is 30% smaller and is available in four colors (Lime, Red, Orange, Olive). To keep the MINI as compact as possible, the belt clip has been removed for players who like to carry the tool in their pocket.

The new Tanto RP2 divot tool ($49.99) is available in multiple colors and includes a bottle opener, a large magnetic ball marker and a solid belt clip.

“We’re excited to introduce Tanto’s premium divot tools to the golf world,” said Joe Caiola, Co-Founder of Tanto. “We look forward to having them available to all golfers at Golf Galaxy this spring.”

Tanto was founded in April, 2019 by Joe Caiola and Josh Leahy, avid golfers and entrepreneurs with a passion for product development. They believe in leaving golf courses in the best condition possible and a big part of that is taking care of the greens. After spotting a void in the marketplace, they immediately started developing golf’s first premium divot repair tool. Tanto divot repair tools can be ordered at
