Paul Chen Hanwei - SH2429

Designed by noted martial artist and teacher Scott Rodell, our Chinese Cutting Sword provides a purpose-built weapon for the art of cutting in Yang-style taiji jian. 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.(Scott Rodell`s martial arts career include over 20 years of training in Yang-style Taijiquan. He is the founding Director of the Great River Taoist Center and the author of \"Chinese Swordsmanship, the Yang Family Taiji Jian Tradition\" and \"A Practical Guide to Test Cutting for Historical Swordsmanship\".)Overall: 39 1/2\"Blade: 29\"Handle: 8 1/2\"Weight: 2lb 2oz
