Katana is a new addition to the Hanwei Samurai sword line, providing a very economical cutting sword as dependable as the Practical Katana, but using more traditional fittings and construction methods. The blade is forged and differentially tempered (HRC60 edge, HRC40 back) and the
temper line (hamon) is prominent. The Practical Plus features genuine Same (Rayskin) on the
Tsuka, with a
traditional black cotton wrap (Tsuka-Ito) specially developed for its gripping qualities. The long tang is double-pegged for security. The fittings of the Practical Plus are decorated in a Japanese Dogwood motif with dragon
menuki, and the handsome Tsuba is of an iron "sunburst" design with a brass
habaki. Comes complete with a black
textured wood scabbard and a black
