Adam Hsu Jianm - Fiberglass Handle
Manufacturer part number:
Designed by world-renowned Chinese martial arts master Sifu Adam Hsu, this Chinese straight sword, or Jian, is becoming the weapon of choice in the Tai Chi community. Functionality, weight and balance are paramount considerations in Sifu Hsu’s designs, while Hanwei’s quality and workmanship give the sword a graceful and pleasing appearance. The blade is crafted in high-carbon spring steel and has a pronounced center ridge and distal taper, producing exactly the right degree of stiffness and a very audible hiss in the cutting stroke. The Ming-style steel guard has an embossed Dragon symbol, while the open-ended pommel facilitates the fitting of a tassel. This Jians comes with a single-hand grip and scabbard made from fiberglass for extreme durability. A unique feature is the “duck-bill lock” in the bottom of the scabbard that securely holds the sword in place.
