CISH2126: SH2126 Banshee Sword
CAS Hanwei

Bred in the jungles of Asia, our Banshee sword has its origins in the Thai “Krabi” and its close cousin, the Burmese “Dah.” Extremely strong and very quick, the Banshee is a cutting sword first and last, with a slightly weight-forward balance for slashing through jungle growth with ease. The high-carbon blade is heat treated for optimum shock absorption and edge retention, and the spiral-wrapped black leather grip provides excellent handling qualities. The sword comes equipped with a high-retention locking mechanism for safety. The wooden scabbard is finished in matte black, with side rings designed to allow a number of carrying options.

Made by Hanwei.

Diy blade
No sharpness, warped blade. Poor heat treatment. If u like to pay good money for a crappy product, go for it. Butt I think ur better off with a condor machete instead. First and last cas hanwei product for me.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Material, Usable
Cons: Handle Material, None
Good blade, handle sucks.
The blade holds an edge and cuts well. The sword is modeled loosely after a Thai Dha but the handle is not like a traditional Dha. It should be round, longer in relation to the blade and not tapered for sure. I like the blade and scabbard so I will be making a new handle for it. The current one affords little grip and slips from your hand due to it's length and taper if used in traditional Thai sword forms. Nice blade, just a poor handle that gets too thin and should be a bit longer. Different grip on the handle like a rattan cord would have been nice too. The top of the handle with the lock should be round too... but not much I can do regarding that. The little retention system is kind of neat though.

The Bandshee is a great zombie killer. Yesterday I loped off the heads of two undead as they tried to climb through my cabin window. The swing was light and the grip was firm. The slice was smooth as the blade ran through the rotting flesh of my postman and my neighbor. Tomorrow I'm going to town to test it further. Watch this space.
