Paul Chen Practical Katana
Paul Chen Practical Katana
No License needed to own this sword created using only traditional processes.

As China's pre-eminent custom knifemaker, Paul Chen's blades usually start at about £400 and work up to several thousand.

Thankfully though, he has created the 'practical' range which are swords designed for everyday use by the martial artist but without all the expensive trimmings (rayskin underwrap, silk, artwork etc.)

They have a genuine differentially heat treated blade which rivals any folded blade for strength and quality.

Measures 39.5" Overall, the 27" high tension carbon steel blade is very sharp, forged and differentially tempered, using the same process as the more expensive blades and producing an RC60 cutting edge and RC40 shock-absorbing back. The temper line is authentic and prominent. The handles are wood covered with tough imitation rayskin then wrapped with suede in the tradtional fashion.
The scabbard is made of wood with a black lacquer finish and high quality strap, also with high quality purple storage sleeve


A superb item designed for everyday martial arts use.

Paul Chen Practical Plus Katana
Paul Chen Practical Plus Katana
No License Needed, handmade using traditional methods

The latest out in the 'practical' range. The piece measures 40" overall.
Differs from practical katana in that it has an updated tsuba (guard), genuine rayskin handle wrap and uses a wrap (Tsuka-Ito) specially developed for its gripping qualities. Also features a superior polish producing a more prominent true hamon on the blade and can be dismantled like the more expensive traditional swords, stuninng.

Please bear in mind this sword is still in the practical series and while finsihed to a higher standard than any sword in it's price band, the blade is not as cosmetically flawless as the more expensive Chen swords.



Handmade using traditional methods,
now no license needed

Japanese War Fan
Japanese War Fan The War Fan was an essential signaling device on the battlefield, used by officers to command and direct troops. The gumbai-dansen version was typically round in shape and stiff with a prolonged stem as a handle. The fan could also be used as weapon using the handle to strike and the stiff fan to block with. Our war fan is based on an original from the Edo period and is inscribed with Chinese military philosophy from Sun Tzu’s “Art of War”. Japanese military leaders were well versed in the strategies of Sun Tzu and it is not surprising to find his maxims gracing antique war fans.

Overall length: 18"

Specs will vary slightly from piece to piece.
