The Practical Special katana is a subtly modified version of the Practical series katana, made in response to requests for a quicker sword at the same economy price. The blade dimensions have been changed slightly and the tsuba cutouts have been enlarged, resulting in a weight loss of 3 ounces and a noticible difference in handling. For those needing a fast draw multiple cut katana at an economy price, the Practical Special katana is the answer.
