Hanwei Practical Plus XL Light Katana: Our Practical Katanas have always been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts community. Designed for quicker cuts in heavier targets, these Practical XL Lights katanas 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 manner, producing an edge hardness of HRC60 and spine hardness of HRC40. The tsuka is tightly wrapped with imitation leather in the traditional style to provide a positive grip that will withstand years of tameshigiri practice.
