Paul Chen/Hanwei Practical Katana

 

Manufacturer:

Paul Chen Hanwei

Type: Swords
Stock Code: 5313
Description:

The blades are forged and differentially hardened, using the same process as the more expensive katana blades and producing an HRC60 edge and HRC40 back. The temper line is authentic and prominent. 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. The Practical Wakizashi (SH2061) and Practical Tanto (SH2254) match the katana and provide a useful and economical set.
