Practical Tanto

By: Paul Chen - Hanwei

Practical Tanto
Paul Chen - Hanwei

Forged Blade

The Practical Tanto gives the martial artist the opportunity to own and use a Hanwei tanto at the cost of an economy tanto. The blade is forged and differentially tempered, using the same process as the more expensive blades and producing an HRC60 edge and HRC40 back. The temper line is authentic and prominent. Produced by Hanwei under the direction of Paul Chen. This practical tanto comes pre-sharpened for the martial artist and tameshigiri cutting. Cost savings are effected by using fittings which, while making no claims to authenticity, are very strongly built to withstand the rigors of cutting exercises in the dojo. Fabric storage bag included.

Collect The Set

The Practical Katana and Practical Wakizashi match the tanto and provide a useful and economical set.

Reviewed by owners of this product

"This is a very attractive Tanto in the lower price range. It comes with a very sharp edge. Nice quality control, everything fit very well. The temper line is very prominent. Blade polish is not as high as on the high end Tanto and Swords from Hanwei but thats not to be expected at this price. After the oil was cleaned off, a light cleaning with metal glo and a protective coat of Rennaissance Wax the blade has a very nice sheen. Overall a very nice Tanto that really finishes off my Orchid Katana display. " - (5/5)

"Economical, practical, and still decorative. But do they come in lefty?" - (4/5)
