Practical Special Katana

Swords » Katana ID: SH2376

Information for Practical Special Katana:

the Practical Special is a subtly modified version of the Practical Katana, made in response to requests for a quicker sword at the same economy price. The blade dimensions have been changed only slightly and the tsuba cutouts have been enlarged, and though this has resulted in a weight loss of only 3 oz, the difference in handling is very noticeable. The Practical will remain the standard for hard, regular cutting, but for those needing a faster draw, multiple cut katana at an economy price, the Special is the answer.

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 tempered, 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. A replacement
Saya (OH1070S) is available
