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.
