(Ref: SH6001KPE)

The Practical Plus Katana provides a very economical cutting sword as dependable as the Practical Katana, but using more traditional fittings and construction methods. The blade is forged and differentially tempered (HRC60 edge, HRC40 back) and the hamon is prominent. The Practical Plus features genuine Same (Rayskin) on the Tsuka, with a tightly-woven cotton wrap (Tsuka-Ito). The long tang is double-pegged for security.

The Practical Plus has been extended to include all of the Performance Series blades; with three cutting styles and three iaito lengths.

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.
