Hanwei's Practical Katanas have always been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts community. These latest unsharpened Practicals combine the weight and feel of the Performance Series with the affordability of our Practical fittings. The removeable handle is tightly wrapped in the tradtional style with imitation leather to provide a positive grip that will withstand years of kata practice.
Designed for frequent Drawing Practice
These unedged training blades provide for safe drawing for the beginning practitioner of the 450 year old art of Iaito. Forged from stainless steel the tempered blades are not only maintenance-free but more importantly provide the correct weight and balance needed for the rigors of repetitive drawing and sword motion practice. Each blade has a deeply cut groove (bo-hi) to provide audible feedback when swung properly.
