OVERVIEW

This is a well-balanced sword with a semi-fullered sharp blade, providing the necessary stiffness for the cutting stroke. Based on the Oakeshott Type XVIIIa with a scent stopper pommel.

Sean Hayes, the Maestro d`armi of the Northwest Fencing Academy at the University of Oregon had this to say about the Hanwei/Tinker Longsword: "I had the opportunity to handle the prototype Tinker Pearce Line Longswords by CAS/Hanwei, and they are beautiful, well-balanced, quick-handling swords at an excellent price. The sharp and blunt versions handle almost identically in cuts, thrusts, and quick posta (guard) transitions. These promise to be the mid-priced training weapon of choice for longsword studies."
