Product Description

The ever-popular Practical Katana and Wakizashi give the martial artist the opportunity to own and use a Hanwei sword at the cost of an economy sword. 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.

Save when you buy the set. 

The set comes with a premium sword stand from Dragon King. This stand looks great with all Dragon King and Paul Chen Hanwei daishu (sword pair) of katana/wakizashi. Each support rail is lined for the protection of the saya finish. This Double Sword Stand is black lacquered for universal decor versatility.

Tonbo is Japanese for "dragonfly". The etymology of the word suggests that it was likely derived from the word "Tonbogiri" (蜻蛉切) which is a cutting spear. The first 2 characters mean "dragonfly" and the third one means "cut". This was the weapon of choice for a Japense general (Honda Tadakatsu) who is said to have fought in over 100 battles without taking a single wound.
