The Practical Special is subtly modified version of the Practical Katana, made in response to requests for a quicker sword at the same economy price. The blade dimensions have been changed only slightly and the tsuba cutouts have been enlarged and though this has resulted in a weight loss of only 3oz., the difference in handling is very noticeable.
The Practical will remain the standard for hard, regular cutting but for those needing a faster draw, multiple cut katana at an economy price.
The Special is the answer
