My personal opinion top

This Practical plus elite katana was made by the Hanwei forge of paul Chen and belongs to a new generation of cutting swords.

Cas Iberia made this new cutting sword in cooperation with Paul Chen and was especially designed the tameshigiri practitioners in het Japanese Martial Arts world who asked for a more suitable and affordable tameshigiri sword.

When comparing with the standard Practical Plus katana, You can see the difference in blade dimensions. This sword really has a 'beefy' blade yet it does not feel as heavy as the Tsunami or Wind&Thunder katana. With such a broad blade, this katana is surprisingly lively and the pronounced distal taper makes a significant difference in it's cutting performance.

Furthermore, The overall theme of this katana is the same as the standard model except for the habaki who does have a very nice falling rain drop design. They did make the tsuka a few cm shorter and the ito on this handle is cotton witch is more suitable for practising.
