The Practical Plus Tanto (SH2259) matches our Practical Plus Katana (SH2073) and Wakizashi (SH2118).  The blade is hand-forged at Hanwei of high-carbon steel and differentially hardened using a traditional claying method (HRC 60 edge, HRC 40 spine).  The temper line (hamon) is evident and prominent.  The flat black saya features a black cotton sageo.  The tsuka has genuine ray skin (same) with a black synthetic leather tsuka-ito for better gripping qualities.  The antiqued fittings on this set are decorated in a Japanese dogwood motif with a beautiful antiqued black sunburst tsuba.
