Description

A Rugged Lightweight Cutting Katana from Paul Chen

The Hanwei XL Light blades feature the same geometry as those of the XL but incorporate deeply cut grooves (bo-hi) to reduce the weight of the blade while retaining most of it's strength and cutting ability.

This katana has excellent balance and feel. The weight reduction makes for a quicker sword, well adapted for multiple cuts in lighter targets. The blade is forged and differentially tempered (HRC60 edge, HRC40 back) and the hamon is prominent with genuine Same (Rayskin) on the Tsuka, with a tightly-woven cotton wrap (Tsuka-Ito).

The long tang is double-pegged for security. The fittings are decorated in a traditional Japanese Dogwood motif with dragon menuki, and the handsome Tsuba is of an iron "sunburst" design with a brass habaki.
