Product Description

The Raptor Series, A new line from Paul Chen Hanwei is a series of cutting katanas which has been designed for the practitioner who does not necessarily have access to traditional cutting mats, but wishes to practice and perfect his cutting technique. The blade of the Raptor katana is hand forged in 5160 high carbon steel and is specifically heat treated to produce very high resilience and greater tolerance to misdirected cuts than a conventionally differentially tempered blade. The edge geometry is configured to facilitate the cutting of both soft and semi hard materials without chipping, allowing the user a wider range of targets.

SH2417 -- Raptor Shobu Zukuri

The Raptor Shobu-Zukuri (Iris Leaf) blade has an elegant shape and powerful cutting ability. Notable for the absence of a Yokote transition, this blade design became popular during the Nanbokucho era (1336 ~1392 AD) and its popularity continued into the Muromachi period.

Made by Hanwei.
