Hanwei – Practical Pro Series – Katana


  • The Practical Pro Katana has an extended tsuka and a thicker and longer blade.
  • The blade is made of hand forged high carbon steel and is differentially tempered using a traditional claying method.
  • The Practical Pro has a finer polish than other pieces in the Practical series.
  • The tsuka is wrapped with synthetic black leather specially developed for its gripping characteristics and is double-pegged for safety.
  • The saya is done in a deep black lacquer with a black Japanese cotton sageo.
  • The fittings (koshirae) are done in antiqued black iron.
  • The katana is stylized with a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the “Wheel of Dharma”, symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path.
  • For those interested in an economical katana that can stand the rigors of heavy cutting (tameshigiri), the Practical Pro is an excellent choice.
