Crafted by CAS Hanwei to a completely different standard of quality than most pieces available, our Damascus Taiji (SH1013) sword is built around a hand-forged Damascus steel blade, profiled to produce a fast, well balanced sword for the martial artist and an authentic piece for the collector of Oriental weaponry. The matching rosewood grip and scabbard with solid bronze fittings, decorated in the traditional Chinese motif, are meticulously finished in this heirloom quality sword.
Premium quality made by Hanwei (Paul Chen).
Specifications may slightly vary from piece to piece.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
