€ 489,00

The Practical Plus Elite Katana provides a very economical cutting sword with traditional fittings and construction methods.

The blade is forged and differentially hardened (HRC60 edge, HRC40 back) and the hamon is prominent. The Practical Plus Elite katana features genuine Same (Rayskin) on the Tsuka, with a tightly-woven cotton wrap (Tsuka-Ito).

The long full-tang is double-pegged for security. The fittings of the Practical Plus katana are decorated in a Japanese Dogwood motif with dragon menuki, and the handsome Tsuba is of an iron sunburst design with a brass habaki.

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.

Practical Plus Elite Katana review

This Katana is awesome!
But lets take a look in detail.
First the handle (tsuka) feels good and has a nice grip. I like the simple but good looking tsuba.
The habaki covers the blade perfectly, all fittings are crafted nice and tight.
Also the saya fits very well, it is not loose and not to tight.
But the blade is really amazing.
It has a bit wider size, but it's slim and has no hi.
The polish is diveded in three parts. The back and sides has a high gloss polish - nearly like a mirror, the middle part has a satin polish like the edge, has but at a diffrent angle.
After using this Katana on a few light targets, I was impressed how it performce - flawless.
And it took only a few minutes to make it my absolute favorite one.
