Differentially hardened, Built for Practice
Hanwei's Practical Katanas have always been at the forefront of blade technology for repeated cutting practice. These swords are very popular with the martial arts community. Designed for quicker cuts in heavier targets, these Practical XL Lights katanas combine the blade geometries and profiles of the Performance Series with the affordability of our Practical fittings.
The blades in the cutting styles are hand forged from high carbon steel and differentially hardened in the traditional manner, producing an edge hardness of HRC60 and spine hardness of HRC40. The fittings are of very high materials quality and the fully sharpened blade will withstand years of tameshigiri practice.
This is a battle ready katana any practitioner or enthusiast would be proud to display and take to the dojo
