CAS Hanwei SH2066 Dark Sentinel
Combining the slashing power of the Samurai Katana with the agility and thrusting ability of fine European dueling swords, the Dark Sentinel is a handsome sword with a bite. Light and quick enough for single-hand fencing but with the ability to turn on awesome two-handed power, the Dark Sentinel will guard the castle gates against all would-be usurpers - without draining the Royal treasury! The forged high-carbon steel blade is complemented by a studded leather-wrapped grip with a stylized tsuba-like guard. A leather-covered scabbard with steel fittings completes the package.

a beautiful swept-hilt rapier, with a 43" Schlaeger blade for tournaments and sparring
The Schlaeger Rapiers utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate our schlaeger blades in 37” (SH1099) and 43” (SH1098) lengths. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword. Our Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe. The Main Gauche, or left hand dagger, was often used with the rapier, providing an added dimension in both offense and defense, and the “Schools of Fence” which proliferated in Europe during this period taught the use of the two weapons in combination. The Main Gauche would often match the Rapier in styling, while incorporating features which maximized the effectiveness of the piece.Replacement blades, both live and blunt (for sparring), are available for most of the Rapiers and Main Gauches. Made by Hanwei. Key Features * High-carbon steel blade * Excellent balance * Button-tipped Specifications Overall: 49 1/4“ Blade Length: 43“ Weight: 2lb 5oz Specs will vary slightly from piece to piece.

the swords of choice for 16th century Scottish mercenaries
Wielded with untamed ferocity on many a Gaelic battlefield, the massive Lowlander sword vividly illustrates the might of the Scots of old. Known as “Slaughter-Swords” in the 16th century, these were the swords of choice for Scottish mercenaries of the period, and at close to six feet long the Lowlander faithfully replicates a surviving museum piece. Though by far the largest sword ever offered by CAS Hanwei, the Lowlander is beautifully proportioned and balanced. The typically Scottish quatrefoils in the ring guards attest to the heritage of this imposing piece. The grips of the Lowlander are leather-covered with an overlaid leather binding. A wall mount is provided to allow the transplanted Gael to display his sword with pride.

designed directly from the actual movie prop sword
Direct from the blockbuster motion pictures Blade and Blade II, starring Wesley Snipes, comes this offically licensed, authentic reproduction of "The Sword of the Day Walker". This magnificent piece was designed by Factory-X directly from the actual studio sword supplied by prop maker Tony Swatton. Factory-X supplied some of these very swords for the actual filming of the sequel! Every detail has been expertly duplicated to please even the most serious collector. The sword features full tang construction, a polished 420 stainless steel blade with "false edge", a powder-coated zinc alloy handle, and measures over 35 inches in length. (No moving parts or boobytraps though!) A black enameled wooden display stand with a metal logo plate is included. The Factory-X version (FX19991) with sharpened edge is now sold out. Fortunately, the United Cutlery version (UC1401) is identical except for the "false edge".
a beautiful and practical taiji sword
Designed by world-renowned Chinese martial arts master Sifu Adam Hsu, these Chinese straight swords (Jian) are 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 swords a graceful and pleasing appearance. The blades are crafted in high-carbon spring steel and have 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 guards have an embossed Dragon symbol, while the open-ended pommels facilitate the fitting of a tassel. A unique feature is the “duck-bill lock” in the bottom of the scabbard that securely holds the sword in place. The single-hand sword is available in four blade sizes. All of the Hsu Jian are available with a choice of fiberglass (for durability) or wood (for the traditionalist) grips and scabbards. Made by Hanwei. Specifications Overall: 35" Blade Length: 28”-34" Handle Length: 7" Weight: 1lb 4oz Point of Balance: 4" Width at Guard: 1.03" Width at Tip: .70" Thickness at Guard: .32" Thickness at Tip: .15" Specs will vary slightly from piece to piece.
