same katana. cas iberia are the owners of the company (or the company itself), which has its own forge (the hanwei forge)

(at least, i THINK thats how it works)

but basicly, its the exact same sword.

im still interested where the endorsement "workhorse" comes from, though!?

How well is the pk balanced?
How should a "real" katana be balanced and how much should it weigh?

depends on the preference of the owner, different people like the sword to behave slightly differently. (H)

I've heard that because the blade is so sharp it can be somewhat brittle and prone to chipping.would this sword be able to slice through materials such as bamboo,bone and flesh?

how do you get rid of the rust that has began on the sword already? There are certain stains on the sword which i cannot remove for some reason so how do i resolve the issue?

Depends how bad and deep the rust is, some photos may help?
