Our Practical Katanas have always been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts community.  Designed for maximum cutting power in heavy targets,  these latest Practical XLs katanas combine the blade geometries and profiles of the Performance Series with the affordability of our Practical fittings.  The blades in the cutting styles are forged from 1566 steel and differentially hardened in the traditional manner,  producing an edge hardness of HRC60 and spine hardness of HRC40.  The removeable handle is tightly wrapped in the tradtional style with imitation leather to provide a positive grip that will withstand years of tameshigiri practice.
