Hanwei Practical Tanto - SH2254
Hanwei Practical Tanto
The Practical Series (SH1070, SH2061, & SH2254) represent our most popular set, offering excellent quality at a great price. The blades are hand-forged high-carbon steel and are differentially tempered using a traditional claying method to produce a HRC60 on the edge (ha) and a HRC40 on the back (mune) with a medium (chu) kissaki. The temper line (hamon) is authentic and prominent. The fittings (koshirae) are superbly antiqued adding to the aesthetics of the set. The saya is done in a deep black lacquer and the sageo is black Japanese cotton.
