Hanwei Practical Pro Series Katana SH2162
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 specialty 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.
