The Practical Katana SH107 represent CAS's most popular sword, 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. The tsuka-ito is wrapped in synthetic leather with great gripping characteristics and imitation ray skin (same) is used. While making no claims to authenticity, are very strongly built to withstand the rigors of cutting exercises (tameshigiri).

Nami Ryu Iaito Katana 26" blade
The Nami Ryu Katana by CAS Hanwei is a light (less than 2lbs.) and extremely well balanced sword and a great starting blade for the Iai enthusiast.
The un-edged blades of these japanese swords are crafted in 400 series stainless steel with a simulated hamon and are fully tempered to withstand repeated drawing and practice cutting strokes. Each blade features a bo-hi (groove), which both reduces blade weight and produces an audible feedback when practice cutting strokes are made correctly.
