The Practical Plus Elite Katana provides a cutting sword that is economical while featuring traditional fittings and construction methods.  Designed for multiple cuts in normal targets,  these Practical Plus Elite Katana features genuine same (Rayskin) on the tsuka,  with a tightly-woven cotton tsuka-ito.  The long tang is double-pegged for security.  The fittings of the Practical Plus Katana are decorated in a Japanese Dogwood motif with dragon menuki,  and the handsome iron tsuba features a "sunburst" design with a brass habaki.
