High Quality Folded K120C Powder Steel Blade
The classic Hanwei Tori XL katana features truly elegant furniture and a high grade powder-steel folded blade. With the functionality of Hanwei's Performance Series, the Tori features a "Flying Crane" themed Tsuba and Fuchi/Kashira while the Menuki are Kabuto or Japanese helmets. The high quality brown leather Tsuka-ito is wrapped over black Same. The Saya is wrapped at the mouth with black-lacquered rattan and then finished in a textured brown.
Competitive cutting, lighter weight katana
The 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 weight reduction makes for a quicker sword, well adapted for multiple cuts in lighter targets.
