Product Description

The ever-popular Practical Katana gives 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 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.

  1. A good start 4 Star Review

    New to swordsmanship. First sword so I have no comparison. Nicely built, a bit rough, fair balance, heavier than I expected. Watermelon and pumpkin watchout! HA!

  2. Practical Katana 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2014

    I actually bought this for a friend outside the USA. Traveling there today. He needs a shinken, but doesn't have loads of money. So, I'm bringing him a gift.

    I've used the Practical Katana before. The Practical Katana is a good, no frills answer to finding a solid, reliable cutting sword without having to sell the farm. The koshirae is basic, but the blade cuts just fine.
