CAS Hanwei Chinese Cutting Sword
Designed by noted martial artist and teacher Scott M. Rodell, our Chinese Cutting Sword provides a purpose-built weapon for the art of cutting in Chinese Swordsmanship. Utilizing a special steel formulation and heat treatment regimen developed by Hanwei, the blade optimizes edge hardness and body toughness, ideal characteristics in a cutting sword. The elegantly simple steel fittings reinforce the sword`s 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 M. Rodell`s martial arts career includes over 25 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 Center, headquartered in Washington D.C. with branches across the U.S., Russia, Estonia, Netherlands, Germany and Australia. Rodell 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.
