Hanwei Practical Tanto by Paul Chen
This Hanwei Practical Tanto by Paul Chen is one of the Practical Series (SH1070, SH2061, & SH2254) that represents one of our most popular set, offering excellent quality at a great price. The Practical Tanto 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. The tsuka-ito is wrapped synthetic leather with great gripping characteristics. Cost savings are affected by using fittings, which, while making no claims to authenticity, are very strongly built to withstand the rigors of cutting exercises (tameshigiri).
