Hanwei aka Paul Chen also makes Iaito or Mogito (read blunt practice sword). We've been admiring Harada Shihan's steel Mogito. It's kinda become a fixation for a few of us who train in Battojutsu with our alloy Iaito. They're wonderful to do Iai with, but any attempts to do anything taijutsu-related can bend the sword.

I was in Capitola, a surfer town on the beach here on the Pacific coast, looking at the Paul Chen Nami Iaito and it was really pleasing. Wonderful furniture and workmanship, good balance and relatively lightweight. Best thing is it's made of stainless steel, though it looks nothing like the crappy taiwan 440 knock-offs.

$295.00 retail, take a look on Ebay and you'll be pleasantly surprised at what they're going for. I think these Iaito/Mogito would be perfect for all-around Iai and Booj training....
