* 28in Tempered Stainless Steel Iaito Blade * Authentically constructed * Built for Martial Artists

The Performance Series is the culmination of years of study of the optimum blade designs for today's martial artists. Four distinct variations are available, each optimized for a particular discipline or cutting application. The laito is an unedged training blade, available in three different lengths, for use in drawing practice and Kata. Its correctly-weighted and balanced steel blade prepares the student for advanced work with live blades. The blade geometry and physical characteristics of each of the Tameshigiri (cutting practice) blades are tailored towards different targets. The Elite Katana's blade is a little wider and a little thicker than its traditional counterpart, allowing for easier cuts on normal targets, while that of the Katana XL is significantly wider, for use in cutting heavy targets. The Katana XL Light has the XL's profile but is provided with Bo-hi, reducing the weight to the point where double cuts are possible but clean cuts on heavier targets may still be made.

Iaito: Frequent Drawing Practice
These unedged training blades provide for safe drawing for the beginning practitioner of the 450 year old art of Iaido. Forged from stainless steel the tempered blades are not only maintenance-free but more importantly provide the correct weight and balance needed for the rigors of repetitve drawing and sword motion practice. Each blade has a deeply cut groove (bo-hi) to provide audible feedback when swung properly.
