The ever-popular Practical Katana gives the martial artist the opportunity to own and use a Hanwei sword at the cost of an economy katana sword.  The blades are forged and differentially hardened,  using the same process as the more expensive katana blades and producing an HRC 60 edge and HRC 40 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.
