Do you want to take down your rivals at your next sword competition? Make sure that you skillfully wield a sword like the Practical Plus XL. Made from 1566 high-carbon steel, this functional samurai sword has a curved blade, typical of Japanese swords. It is best for competitively cutting targets with its differential tempering and narrow edge angle. It has an HRC 60 edge and a HRC 40 spine.
Also, the shinogi-zukuri blade features a visible temper-line. The sword features a brass blade collar before the black circular tsuba. The tsuba has a cutout sunburst design.
The hilt continues with a wrapped handle. Black cotton wraps around the cream-colored ray-skin grip. Two pegs secure the handle onto the tang. A Japanese dogwood motif adorns the fittings, while the menuki looks like a dragon.
Finally, this sword comes with a black lacquered scabbard. The scabbard features a black cord wrapping, or sageo, at the top. This Japanese katana is ideal for wielding at a competition or sword practice. You can add it to any sword collection.
