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 the Performance Series with the affordability of their Practical fittings. The 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 tameshigiri practice.

The XL Light high carbon blade features the same geometry as those of the XL, but incorporates deeply cut grooves (bo-hi) to reduce the weight of the blade while retaining most of its strength and cutting ability. This weight reduction makes for a quicker sword, well adapted for multiple cuts in lighter targets.  Ships Separately, No Express Shipping available on this item.
