Performance Series: CAS/Hanwei is proud to introduce the most significant advancement in our katana line to date; the Performance Series. Featuring four distinct blade variations (Iaito, Katana, XL, and XL Light) each sword has been designed from the ground-up, with blade geometry specially adapted to the needs of each Japanese martial arts discipline. Currently offered in two formats (Tori and Practical) with more to follow, the series will feature a wide range of steels and furniture styles to meet every budget. - Our Practical Katanas 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 our Practical fittings, competition-standard cutting is within the reach of the tightest budget - Katana: Frequent Cutting / Occasional Drawing Practise Our Katana Blades embody the classical design elements of the most prolific sword design in history. With their strong Shinogi Zukuri shape that accentuates the differential heat treatment, these blades are traditionally proportioned to appeal to the collector but they will also perform well in general cutting of hard or soft targets.

 

Our Practical Katanas have always been at the forefront of providing economical yet functional swords to the martial arts cutting community. Designed for multiple cuts in normal targets, these Practical Elites combine the blade geometries and profiles of the Performance Series with the affordability of our Practical fittings. The blades are forged in 1566 steel and differentially hardened in the traditional manner, producing an edge hardness of HRC60 and spine hardness of HRC40. The removeable handle is tightly wrapped in the tradtional style with imitation leather to provide a positive grip that will withstand years of kata or tameshigiri practise.
