Practical Wakizashi

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. It is suitable for tameshigiri (test cutting) or kodachi kata.  The CAS Hanwei practical wakizashi fittings match the katana and make a great daisho set.
