Hsu Series Jian Tai Chi Swords
CAS Hanwei Hsu Series Jian with 30" Blade.
Single Hand. Wood handle. Functionality, weight and balance are
paramount considerations in Sifu Hsus designs, while Hanwei quality
and workmanship give the swords a graceful and pleasing appearance. The
blades are crafted in high-carbon spring steel and have a pronounced
center ridge and distal taper, producing exactly the right degree of
stiffness and a very audible hiss in the cutting stroke. The Ming-style
steel guards have an embossed Dragon symbol, while the open ended
pommels facilitate the fitting of a tassel. A unique feature is the
"duck-bill lock" in the bottom of the scabbard that securely holds the
sword in place. Specs will vary slightly from piece to piece.
