The ever-popular Practical Katana (SH1070), Wakizashi (SH2061) and Tanto (SH2254) from Paul Chen?give the martial artist the opportunity to own and use a Hanwei sword at the cost of an economy sword. The blades are forged and differentially hardened, using the same process as the more expensive blades and producing an HRC60 edge and HRC40 back. The temper line is authentic and prominent. Cost savings are effected by using fittings which, while making no claims to authenticity, are very strongly built by Hanwei to withstand the rigors of cutting exercises in the dojo.
