Additional information

The Practical Pro Elite Katana has an extended tsuka and a thicker and longer (29”) Performance Series blade with a finer polish when compared to others in the Practical series. The blade is forged in high-carbon steel and differentially hardened using the traditional claying method. The rayskin-covered tsuka is wrapped with cotton ito and is double-pegged for safety. The saya is finished in a deep black lacquer with a black Japanese cotton sageo. The fittings (koshirae) are finished in antiqued black iron. The katana features a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the ”Wheel of Dharma”, symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path.

The Elite Series Katana Blades embody the classical design elements of the most prolific sword design in history. With their strong Shinogi Zukuri shape that accentuates the differential heat treatment, these blades are traditionally proportioned to appeal to the collector but they will also perform well in general cutting of hard or soft targets.

  1. Lucas

    Hanwei’s most underrated Katana Great sword for the price. Hard hitting sword for cutting, but excellent balance and very lively in hand. Mine arrived with a very sharp kissaki. The laquer on the scabbard is done well with no imperfections, and the tsuka ito is reasonably tight. Tsuka is long and gets thinner towards the kashira. Blade has a pleasant shape and interesting hamon. Despite its size and weight, this sword is surprisingly manuverable and easy to wield. The fit and finish is excellent. I’m very pleased with this sword.
