The Practical Plus XL Light Katana provides a very economical cutting sword as dependable as the Practical XL Light Katana SH6000LPF, but using more traditional fittings and construction methods. The blade is forged and differentially hardened HRC60 edge, HRC40 back and the hamon is prominent. The Practical Plus features genuine Same Rayskin on the Tsuka, with a tightly-woven cotton wrap Tsuka-Ito. The long tang is double-pegged for security.The fittings of the Practical Plus are decorated in a Japanese Dogwood motif with lion dog menuki, and the handsome Tsuba is of an iron sunburst design with a brass habaki. brbrThe XL Light blades feature the same geometry as those of the XL but incorporate deeply cut grooves bo-hi to reduce the weight of the blade while retaining most of its strength and cutting ability. This weight reduction makes for a quicker sword, well adapted for multiple cuts in lighter targets. brbr- Massive XL Light Blade Geometry br- Traditional Construction br- Built for Martial Artists brbrSpecificationsbrbr- Overall length 41br- Blade length 28 br- Handle length 11br- Weight 2lb 9ozbr- Point of Balance 5 12br- Width at Guard 1.45br- Width at Tip 1.12br- Thickness at Guard .24br- Thickness at Tip .19br- Sori 34
