Hanwei Practical Katana

(Ref: SH1070)

The blades are forged and differentially tempered, using the same process as the more expensive blades and producing an HRC60 edge and HRC40 back. The temper line is authentic and prominent. Cost savings are effected by using fittings which, while making no claims to authenticity, are very strongly built to withstand the rigors of cutting exercises in the dojo.

Hanwei Practical Special Katana

(Ref: SH2376)

The Practical Special is a subtly modified version of the Practical Katana, made in response to requests for a quicker sword at the same economy price. The blade dimensions have been changed only slightly and the tsuba cutouts have been enlarged, and though this has resulted in a weight loss of only 3 oz, the difference in handling is very noticeable. The Practical will remain the standard for hard, regular cutting, but for those needing a faster draw, multiple cut katana at an economy price, the Special is the answer.

Key Features

  • Forged high-carbon steel blade
  • Differential tempering
  • Quick Blade

Attributes

  • This katana is sharp.
  • This katana is fully functional.
  • This katana is hand-forged.
  • This katana is differentially hardened.

Hanwei Practical Elite Katana

(Ref: SH6000KPC)

Our 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 our Practical fittings. The blades in the cutting styles are forged from 1566 steel and differentially tempered 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 kata or tameshigiri practice.

The "PB" symbol indicates the blade is from the Performance series. The Elite katana's blade is a little wider and a little thicker then the traditional counterpart, allowing for easier cuts on normal targets. The XL blade is significantly wider, for use in cutting heavy targets, and finally the XL Light has the XL's profile, but with a bo-hi, reducing the weight to the point where double cuts are possible, but clean cuts on heavy targets can still be made.

Key Features

  • Forged high-carbon steel blade
  • Differential tempering
  • New Blade Geometry

Attributes

  • This katana is sharp.
  • This katana is fully functional.
  • This katana is hand-forged.
  • This katana is differentially hardened.
