Durable Cutting Katana With Extended Tsuka and Thicker Blade
The Hanwei Practical Pro Elite Katana features an extended tsuka and longer, thicker blade (now 29"). The blade has been differentially tempered using traditional claying techniques, and is forged of 1065 high-carbon steel which is finished in a finer polish than what you'd expect from a practical sword. The enhanced tsuka is double pegged for safety and strength, and features a genuine rayskin same' covered in black cotton, giving a superb grip
The saya is deeply finished in black lacquer with a black sageo made from Japanese cotton. This sword's fittings (koshirae) are finished in antiqued black iron. The katana features a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the "Wheel of Dharma," symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path.
