CISH1070: Practical Katana

CAS Hanwei

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

Excellent basic Katana
Out of the box you get a nicely lacquered scabbard and good basic finish. In use you cannot go wrong for the price and overall is a great test cutting sword. As mentioned in other reviews this Katana quite sharp and cutting milk jugs or tatami mats is easy and you do not have to worry about tarnishing a a more expensive blade..

Cons: Overall Quality, Materials, Blade Material, Finish
poor blade quality
Though a very attractive sword. The blade itself is quite thin and dull. This item is intended for the beginner collector. But makes hanwei look like a junk sword producer.
