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 - XL Light: Competitive Cutting / Light Weight The XL Light blades feature the same geometry as those of the XL but incorporate deeply cut grooves (bo-hi) to reduce the weight of the blade while retaining most of it's strength and cutting ability. This weight reduction makes for a quicker sword, well adapted for multiple cuts in lighter targets.

 

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