This Pre-Owned Paul Chen Practical Pro Katana is in very good condition overall. The blade has some minor light scuffs and scratches and the entirety of the hilt is well-fitted and remains solidly constructed. The tsuba has some wear on the blackened finish on its edges, but otherwise the rest of the hilt has only very minor blemishes. The glossy finish on the scabbard has some scuffs and scratches, but is in good functional condition. Included is a black cloth sword bag.

The Paul Chen Practical Pro Katana features an extended tsuka and a thicker and longer blade then the Practical Plus. The blade is constructed from hand-forged, high-carbon steel and is differentially tempered using a traditional claying method. The Practical Pro has a fine polish to it compared to others in the series. The tsuka is wrapped with synthetic black leather for its gripping characteristics and is double-pegged for safety. The rayskin is synthetic, but textured so as to allow it to function as genuine rayskin would. The saya is done in a deep black lacquer with a black Japanese cotton sageo. The fittings are done in antiqued black iron. This katana is stylized with a round Kuruma tsuba, which represents the Wheel of Dharma, symbolizing the Buddhist concept of the Noble Eightfold Path. For those interested in an economical katana that can stand the rigors of heavy cutting (tameshigiri), the Practical Pro is an excellent choice.
