CAS Hanwei Practical Tai Chi Sword 28" Unsharpened Blade, Black Wood Handle and Scabbard - SH2008A
CISH2008A: Practical Tai Chi Sword 28" Blade
The Practical Taiji (Tai Chi) series from Hanwei has been developed in response to many requests for a quality Taiji sword for everyday practice. The SH2008 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 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.
