Now available to match the ever-popular Practical Katana (SH1070) is the Paul Chen Hanwei Practical Wakizashi, offering the same 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.

    This wakizashi looks great. It has nice balance and a true temper line. It is sharp out of the box and cuts well. A great sword for a good price.

    First of all, of course, there are people out there who prefer traditional fittings and all… Personally, what I look for in a sword is functionality. This sword is just it; I’ve had mine for two years, now, and it never failed –even though I mistreated it more than once. For a practical blade, this is just perfect, ‘cuz you don’t need it to be extremely shiny, just polished enough so that the geometry lets it cut. The real hamon is subtle and pretty. Buy the practical wakizashi if you want a beater that, even though not traditional by its fittings, is elegent, agile, and efficient. Also, if this is your first time asking yourself if you should buy a sword, go for it! It may cost a little more than other affordable blades, but it will last longer, trust me!
