Up for sale is a heavily customized Paul Chen Practical Plus tanto. Theblade is a hira zukuri shaped suguta with a notare style hamon. The blade hasbeen heavily repolished to bring the blade finish up to a higher degree. The hamon was re-etched and has a much more natural appearence with more activity in the nioi. The Practical finish is usually fairly poor, this blade looks like it belongs in the higher classes now.
