Our Practical Katanas have always been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts community. These latest Practicals combine the blade geometries and profiles of the Performance Series with the affordability of our Practical fittings. The blades in the cutting styles are forged from 1566 steel and differentially hardened in the traditional way producing an edge hardness of HRC60 and spine hardness of HRC40. The removeable handle is tightly wrapped in the tradtional style with imitation leather to provide a positive grip that will withstand years of kata or tameshigiri practice. Our Katana Blades embody the classical design elements of the most prolific sword design in history. With their strong Shinogi Zukuri shape that accentuates the differential heat treatment, these blades are traditionally proportioned to appeal to the collector but they will also perform well in general cutting of hard or soft targets.

As far as the quality goes, I am extremely novice so I'll do my best. It appears to have good balance and the handwrap provides a good grip. The blade is straight and appears free of cracks or major flaws. The hamon looks as if it might be etched to enhance its prominence. The fit in the scabbard is tight and secure. I was disappointed that the lanyard was not decoratively wrapped, but this is easily fixed by watching a youtube instructional video.
All in all, I would recommend this as a good starter for a collection.
With a quick spin and flick of his wrist, he made short work of them also. My Hero!!
Seriously though, this blade is so sharp when whacking the flying oranges, you couldn't even feel the blade go thru....just the spray of orange juice. Those poor trees didn't stand any more of a chance than the flying oranges did - and you really didn't feel anything when slicing their heads - er, tops - off.
Great sword for the money and a lot of fun as well. Just be careful.....it is VERY sharp. Ask my husband...once his finger heals. :-)
p.s. they just need to ship these things double boxed so they don't get damaged by the shipping people...
