Additional information

Hanwei’s Practical Katanas have always been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts community. These latest Practicals combine the blade geometries and profiles of the Performance Series with the affordability of their Practical fittings. The blades in the cutting styles are forged from 1566 steel and differentially hardened in the traditional way producing an edge hardness of HRC60 and spine hardness of HRC40. The removeable handle is tightly wrapped in the tradtional style with imitation leather to provide a positive grip that will withstand years of tameshigiri practice. Includes a black laquered saya (scabbard) and cotton sword bag.

    Great sword. I would highly recommend it. A great, high quality item for a reasonable price that is very sharp and has a simple but charming look. I would recommend this product to any sword lover.

    First sword I love it, very nice to look at despite some of the faux fittings, which are simple and handsome, tight handle, sharp but not too sharp, nice looking Harmon , a little grey looking because it’s etched with acid? Cuts saplings, jugs, bottles, scratches but no edge damage so far

  4. T.F

    Nice blade I have to state that I am not a Katana guy and I am not the most knowledgeable about them. Therefore, I will keep my review plain. This sword is well constructed and tight fitting. Nothing is loose and it feels solid in the hand. The price point is perfect for a functional blade. The sword is quite handsome, and I appreciate the simplicity of it.

    Is it full tang?
