Hanwei Practical Katanas have always been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts community. This Practical combines the blade geometries and profiles of their Performance Series with the affordability of their Practical fittings. The high carbon blade is 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 kata or tameshigiri practice.  

Frequent Cutting / Advanced Drawing Practice
Hanwei 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.
