Replacement blades are available for all swords in the series; a key feature of Tinker's designs is the interchangeability of blades within each pair of swords with the exception of the Viking, allowing the user to purchase one complete sword and a spare blade to enjoy both versions. The Longswords, Bastard Swords and Early Medieval Swords all feature Tinker's recessed sleeve nut mounting system, providing secure hilt retention, tightening and easy blade exchange using the Allen wrench provided.
Michael 'Tinker' Pearce has designed a series of swords made by Hanwei in 5160 steel, which emphasise authenticity, functionality and performance. To satisfy the sparring and cutting needs of Western Martial Artists, each of the 7 styles are made in live (sharp) and sparring (blunt) versions and each sword has outstanding handling characteristics. The carefully controlled heat-treating of 5160 steel (Tinker's blade steel of choice) by the marquenching process produces an excellent combination of toughness and flexibility at a hardness of HRC 50-52, allowing for superior edge retention on the sharps, anti burr and tip-flexing safety features on the blunts.
The Hand-and-a-half Swords (Oakeshott Type XV111A) are designed so that the sharp and blunt versions will perform identically, offering sparring and cutting with swords that feel and respond in the same way. The sharp sword is produced in two different versions, one diamond section throughout (Product No. HN-SH2400) and the other identical but fullered for about one third of its length (Product No. HN-SH2411). The wheel-shaped pommel is sized to provide a grip for the second hand, the straight tapering cross-section provides excellent hand protection. The hardwood-cored grip is leather-over-cord wrapped, with steel fittings. Leather covered scabbard is included.
Specs may slightly vary from piece to piece.
