CISH2162: SH2162 Practical Pro Katana
CAS Hanwei
The Practical Pro Katana from Hanwei is built as an economical cutting sword for heavy targets, with an extended tsuka and a thicker and longer blade. The blades of the katana are constructed from hand-forged, high-carbon steel and are differentially hardened using a traditional claying method. The Practical Pro Katana has a finer polish than others in the series. The tsuka is wrapped with synthetic black leather for its gripping characteristics and is double-pegged for safety. The saya is finished in a deep black lacquer with a black cotton sageo. The katana is stylized with a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the "Wheel of Dharma," symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path.

Cons: Handle Material, None
I misjudged this product.
I gave this sword a bad review before I actually tried it. This based on the notion that a sword has to be razor sharp for mat cutting. This caused me to delay using it for practice. Which was a mistake since it cleanly cut a tatami mat with one stroke when I did try it. In consideration of what I have learned about swords and their capabilities. This sword would be a good choice for the person who wants to learn to cut.

Pros: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Material
no edge
The overall construction of the sword is excellent. However the blade comes poorly sharpened, Which renders it virtually useless for cutting.
