Shinto Elite Katana


Shinto Elite Katana by Paul Chen with T10 carbon steel sword blade is designed for frequent cutting exercises in shinogi zukuri shaping.



Hanwei's Shinto Elite Katana features a hand-forged T10 high carbon steel blade. Designed for multiple cuts in normal targets, this Samurai sword also features genuine  same (ray skin) on the tsuka, with a tightly woven tsuka-ito in premium black Japanese cotton.
