CATEGORY B High quality, well-balanced carbon steel swords, but not as hard as category A swords. They withstand well controlled combat without strong blows, but they should be used with swords of the same hardness, as they can be damaged in a fight with a harder blade. The minimum hardness is 48 HRC. They have a full tang, bolted or welded to the handle. Unsharpened and with a rounded edge. Light and easy to handle with a well balanced centre of gravity.
