Hand forged from the Paul Chen Hanwei Forge.  The PK is the no-frills katana for those on a budget.  It makes a good project blade for those who want to learn how to sharpen katana or make/wrap handles.  We only recommend use of the PK our dojo if the tsuka has been replaced with a removable version.  This allows periodic inspection of the nakago (tang) under the habaki (blade collar) to detect metal fatigue and corrosion.
