CISH2278: Hsu 2-handed Jian - Fiberglass Handle
CAS Hanwei

Designed by world-renowned Chinese martial arts master Sifu Adam Hsu, these Chinese straight swords (Jian) are becoming the weapon of choice in the Tai Chi community. Functionality, weight and balance are paramount considerations in Sifu Hsu’s designs, while Hanwei’s 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. The Jians are available with the grips and scabbards made from either fiberglass (Single-hand SH2269A,B,C and D, Double-hand SH2278) for extreme durability or exotic wood (SH2313A,B,C and D) for the traditionalist. A unique feature is the “duck-bill lock” in the bottom of the scabbard that securely holds the sword in place. The single-hand sword is available in four blade sizes SH2269A, SH2313A – 28”, SH2269B, SH2313B – 30”, SH2269C, SH2313C – 32” and SH2269D, SH2313D – 34”. The two-hand Jian (SH2278) features a 36” blade and an 11” grip. With a weight of slightly less than 2 lbs. this long sword handles beautifully.
