The Practical Pro Katana from Hanwei is built as an economical cutting sword for heavy targets, with an extended tsuka and a thicker and longer blade. The blades of the katana are constructed from hand-forged, high-carbon steel and are deferentially hardened using a traditional claying method. The Practical Pro Katana has a finer polish than others in the series. The tsuka is wrapped with synthetic black leather for its gripping characteristics and is double-pegged for safety. The saya is finished in a deep black lacquer with a black cotton sageo. The katana is stylized with a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the “Wheel of Dharma,” symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path.
