Practical Plus Katana by Paul Chen / Hanwei

Manufacturer part number: SH2073

The Practical Katana Plus is much like its sibling in being an affordable, yet functional katana. The sunburst tsuba sets it apart.
Ships separately, no express shipping available on this item. Cannot ship outside the US.


The ever-popular Practical Katana Plus gives the martial artist the opportunity to own and use a Hanwei sword at the cost of an economy sword. The high carbon steel blade is forged and differentially hardened, using the same process as the more expensive blades. The temper line is authentic and prominent. The long tang is double-pegged for security. The fittings of the Practical Plus katana are decorated in a Japanese Dogwood motif with dragon menuki, and the handsome Tsuba is of an iron “sunburst” design with a brass habaki. 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.
