Developed in response to requests from Wushu practitioners for swords with ultra-flexible blades, the Practical Wushu (SH2062) sword from Hanwei has a spring steel blade that tapers to almost paper-thin at the tip. The light weight (barely one pound) of the sword makes it extremely fast in skilled hands.
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.
