Practical Pro Elite Katana

The Practical Pro Elite Katana has an extended tsuka compared to the rest of the Elite Series. The blade is forged in high-carbon steel and is differentially tempered using a traditional claying method. The Practical Pro Elite has a fine polish compared to others in the practical series. The rayskin-covered tsuka is wrapped with black cotton 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 features a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the "Wheel of Dharma," symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path.
