Practical Pro Elite Katana - SH6009KPG
Practical Pro Elite Katana
The Practical Pro Elite Katana has an extended tsuka and a thicker and longer (29") Performance Series blade with a finer polish when compared to others in the Practical series. The blade is forged in high-carbon steel and differentially hardened using the traditional claying method. The rayskin-covered tsuka is wrapped with cotton ito and is double-pegged for safety. The saya is finished in a deep black lacquer with a black Japanese cotton sageo. The fittings (koshirae) are finished in antiqued black iron. The katana feature a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the 'Wheel of Dharma', symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path.
