Product Description

Paul Chen is one of the leading sword smiths in the world. His company, Cas Hanwei specializes in making durable and traditional katana that can stand up to anything. These samurai swords are not only wonderful to look at, but they are hardcore cutting swords that hold an edge extremely well.

Due to demand, the Practical Pro Katana has an extended tsuka and a thicker and longer blade. The blades are constructed from hand-forged, high-carbon steel and are differentially tempered using a traditional claying method.

The Practical Pro has a fine polish to it compared to others in the series. The tsuka is wrapped with synthetic black leather for its gripping characteristics and is double-pegged for safety. The saya is done in a deep black lacquer with a black Japanese cotton sageo. The fittings (koshirae) are done in antiqued black iron. The katana is stylized with a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the Wheel of Dharma, symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path.

For those interested in an economical katana that can stand the rigors of heavy cutting (tameshigiri), the Practical Pro is an excellent choice.

Just received Practical pro and I can tell you really quick delivery, I'm from Australia and I received katana in 8 days since I paid for. Katana is all I expected just little bit disappointed about saya Koiguchi and Kojiri are made from teen plastic but this is Hanwei fault not sote
