Designed by noted martial artist and teacher Scott M. Rodell, Hanwei's Chinese Cutting Sword provides a purpose-built weapon for the art of cutting in Chinese Swordsmanship. Utilizing a special steel formulation and heat treatment regimen developed by Hanwei, the blade optimizes edge hardness and body toughness, ideal characteristics in a cutting sword. The elegantly simple steel fittings reinforce the sword`s mission, providing uncluttered lines while still remaining true to tradition. The black leather-over-cranberry rayskin grip ensures secure handling. A rosewood scabbard with fittings matching the hilt completes an attractive package.
The Practical Taiji (Tai Chi) series from CAS Hanwei was developed in
response to many requests for a quality Taiji sword for everyday practice. The
series features three blade lengths to suit the individual requirements of the
Taiji practitioner. Featuring a steel guard and pommel the swords are correctly
balanced and the the un-edged blades are crafted in fully tempered high-carbon
steel. The flattened-diamond blade section produces a blade that is moderately
stiff, while still allowing for some flexibility. A matching Tassel is
The Flexible Tai Chi Sword was developed in response to requests from Wushu
practitioners for swords with ultra-flexible blades, the Practical Wushu has a
spring steel blade that tapers to almost paper-thin at the tip. The light weight
(barely one pound) of the sword makes it extremely fast in skilled hands.
A matching Tassel is available.
The pattern of the Ming Sword dates from the Ming Dynasty
(1368 AD -- 1644 AD), which ruled China for almost three centuries after the
fall of the Mongol controlled Yuan Dynasty. The beauty of this delightfully
compact sword centers on its superb pattern-welded K120C blade, forged with a
ridged central fuller providing the stiffness required for thrusting and the
lightness required for speed. The grip is sculpted from brown buffalo horn,
which is also used in thin, translucent wafers as a shell for the intricately
decorated scabbard. The brass fittings are selectively decorated with dynastic
designs plated in silver.
The Practical Gongfu Broadsword sword is a further extension of our
"Practical" Series. Featuring a distal-tapered high carbon steel blade,
wrapped grip and steel fittings, the saber is a traditional ox-tail design.
The textured wooden scabbard is designed with a slotted opening, which makes
both for easy sheathing and graceful lines. In line with other swords in the
"Practical" series, the Practical Gongfu Broadsword is very affordable.
The Hanwei Forge has made this Dao for Wushu
practitioners. The ultra-flexible high-carbon blade
tapers to an almost paper-thin
tip. It is barely a pound in weight and very quick. The "Water Song" (caused by vibrating the blade) is very audible.
The Paul Chen Jie Dao, which may vary greatly in size, is traditionally used by Shaolin monks not as a weapon (which is forbidden) but for domestic purposes, including shaving. When traveling on foot, the Jie Dao may be used to clear a path in the forest or to gather firewood. The "Jie" in Jie Dao means "abstain", and Jie Dao translates as "the sword of abstention from killing". This explains the deliberate lack of a sharp point and ascribes spiritual as well as functional value. The best known legend involving the Jie Dao tells of Huike, the successor to Bhodidharma, who cut off his left arm with a Jie Dao in order to demonstrate his sincerity to Dharma.
