I'm trying to choose a katana that I'd get. I'm looking at carbon steel, differentially tempered, practical/functional katanas. I don't really know where else to look other than all those Paul Chan katanas around the web and dealers. If I'm getting one of those, I'm trying to decide on whether to get the Practical Katana (1070GT), the Practical Plus (2073GT) or the Practical Fantasy (2162GT). I like the Practical Fantasy most, but I think the handle is a tad bit too long for my tastes. The Practical Plus is almost perfect, but for the matte finish on the sheath. And I think the Practical Katana is too plain... The Plus and Fantasy are about the same price (around $250-270), while the Practical is about $100 cheaper... I think the blade is not that much different, but the Plus and the Fantasy use more traditional fittings and finishes on the rest of the sword, while the Practical one uses cheaper imitations, hence cheaper (though by $100?). The Plus and the Fantasy has leather wraps for the handle, more furnishings, etc. And suggestions? Comments? Experience with any one of these? Or should I look for something else?
