Practical Daisho 

The Paul Chen practical Elite katana has a forged high carbon differentially tempered blade.  It is an improved version of the original practical katana and now has a removable tsuka (handle) to make safety inspections possible.  The Practical Katana have always been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts community. Now with the blade geometries and profiles of the performance series and the affordability of the Practical fittings, competition-standard cutting is within the reach of the tightest budget.

The Practical Wakizashi offers quality at a great price. Blades are forged and differentially tempered to 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 to withstand the rigors of cutting exercises. t is suitable for tameshigiri (test cutting) or kodachi kata.  The CAS Hanwei practical wakizashi fittings match the katana and make a great daisho set.
