Product Description

The Hanwei Practical broadswords are all based on authentically styled swords in the collection but they are tailored to meet the needs of re-enactment and stage combat. These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies. The blades are crafted from 1566 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blades are substantial, they are fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics. They feature 1/16” wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tangs are also substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. The end of the tang is riveted over the pommel, which both eliminates any possibility of inadvertent disassembly. The hardwood grips are leather-covered. The scabbards are fabricated in glass-filled resin, to eliminate swelling and to minimize blade corrosion problems, with belt rings that adjust to allow vertical or horizontal carry. The wood-grain finish is attractive, but most re-enactors will decorate the scabbard to match their persona. The Practical Single-Hand Sword is based on the Marshall sword, so named for one of England’s finest knights of the latter half of the 12th century. The sword is classically styled, with a cruciform hilt, wheel pommel and a ridged-and-fullered blade that is both stiff and surprisingly light. With a weight of less than 2 ½ lbs., the sword can be wielded forcefully without undue wear and tear on the arm.

  1. My "office" sword 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th May 2017

    I am new to HEMA, and at present have 1 sword. It's a Valiant Armory Bristol and wanted something to work out with in the office to get my wrist into shape. it's a bit lighter that I thought I would have wanted but it allows me to do more repetitions before fatigue sets in so I guess it's a good thing. the grip will dye you hand the first few times you use it until the excess dye wears off but provides a good grip. the blade has 3 fullers that give it a bit of a whoosh when moved quickly which is fun, but may lead to some exuberant waiving about when you should be practicing your guards! it has some oil applied to the blade before it was placed in the scabbard, so be prepared to have it a bit wet each time you remove it to use not a big deal and will keep it from rusting, just be mindfull.
