Hanwei Hand and a Half Sword - SH2365
Hanwei Hand and a Half Sword
Hand-and-a-Half Sword, this version of a 16th century piece are a longtime favorite. Balance is excellent, providing a sword which lends itself to both single and two-handed use. Iberia Swords are crafted in much the same way as swords were made centuries ago, except that the blades are now forged from high-carbon spring steel, a resource unavailable off-the-shelf to the smiths of the old. The blade finish is far from being polished, again more closely replicating what the medieval swordsmith was able to achieve. Except as noted, grips are leather-covered hardwood. Fittings are either steel or solid brass. Except, where shown all of these swords have scabbards of leather-covered fiberglass with steel lockets and chapes and removable suspension rings. These swords will appeal to the re-enactor who wants a sword with the same appearance as the originals.
