CAS Hanwei Paul Chen Practical XL Katana
This is a beautiful katana with simple high-quality furnishings, and very nice fit, and finish. It has the impressive XL blade geometry and build design, for heavier duty tameshigiri, and the sword is very well-balanced for its size and weight. The blade that I received has a beautiful hamon, and is very sharp. The tsuka-ito came tightly wrapped, and with nice equal size diamond shapes tied into the handle ito. The saya is a really nice quality high-gloss black piano lacquered saya, with a nice fit around the habaki, and a quality sageo. The katana arrived well-packaged and was shipped and arrived very fast. Thank you again.
