Official swords of the Shaolin Temple

The Hun Yuan Sword is crafted in the "Jian" style and is intended as a fully functional sword for the Martial Artist. The Paduak wood handle is complemented by a beautifully sculpted guard and pommel in Nickel Silver, with a central design on the guard which combines elements of Confucianism, Taoism and Hun Yuan. The Paduak/Nickel Silver combination and the design theme are elegently repeated in the scabbard. In contrast to the traditional appearance, the blade is forged from Maraging Steel, a material which utilizes very advanced heat treatment technology to produce excellent shock resistance and flexibility.

Hanwei has now been accorded the distinction of crafting the swords that the ShaolinTemple presents to honored state guests and to foreign dignitaries visited by Temple delegations. The swords are designed and produced by Paul Chen, under Hanwei's license as the exclusive supplier of swords to the Shaolin Temple. Under the terms of this agreement, CAS Hanwei is permitted to distribute these swords to collectors and is the only company officially allowed to use the Shaolin Temple insignia in association with its swords. In accordance with the principles of the Temple, Hanwei strives for perfection in the design and production of these pieces, with the goal of combining traditional values and techniques with contemporary design interpretations. The conceptual themes of these three swords are the Martial Arts (Shaolin Hun Yuan Sword), Religious Ideals (King of the Kinnaras Sword) and History (Shaolin Wootz Sword), each design allowing a unique insight into its individual concept in terms of aesthetic presentation and materials. These innovative designs, with their beautifully detailed finish and outstanding craftsmanship, represent the skill and national pride of the Hanwei swordmakers. Undoubtedly among the most collectible swords made in China today, each sword is individually serial numbered and provided with a superb display stand. It represents a valuable addition to any collection.

Buck Knives Fixed Omni Hunter 12 Pt Knife with Black Handle and Guthook Blade
"What can I say - It's a Buck! Excellent feel and of course very sharp. I have owned many Buck knives over the years (I'm 69) and I have never been disappointed."

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
