Brand: Hanwei

Designed by noted martial artist and teacher Scott Rodell, our Chinese Cutting Sword provides a purpose-built weapon for the art of cutting in Yang-style taiji jian. Utilising a special steel formulation and heat treatment regimen developed by Hanwei, the blade optimises edge hardness and body toughness, ideal characteristics in a cutting sword. The elegantly simple steel fittings reinforce the swords mission, providing uncluttered lines while still remaining true to tradition. The black leather-over-cranberry rayskin grip ensures secure handling. A rosewood scabbard with fittings matching the hilt completes an attractive package.

Scott Rodells martial arts career includes over 20 years of training in Yang-style Taijiquan. He has trained under several noted Chinese masters, in both the U.S. and China. He is the founding Director of the Great River Taoist Centre, headquartered in Washington D.C. with branches across the U.S., Northern Europe, Russia, Estonia and Australia. Scott is the author of Chinese Swordsmanship, the Yang Family Taiji Jian Tradition and A Practical Guide to Test Cutting for Historical Swordsmanship, both of which are highly recommended.
