Hanwei Tinker Bastard Replacement Blade Blunt by Paul Chen
The Hanwei Tinker Bastard Replacement Blade Blunt by Paul Chen is a Bastard blunt sparring blade that may be used either to replace severely worn sparring blades or to convert the Bastard cutting sharp (SH2400 or SH2411) to a sparring format. Made by Hanwei.
Michael `Tinker` Pearce new line of swords that will satisfy both the sparring and cutting needs of Western Martial Arts practitioners. Matching sharp and blunt versions of each sword in the series offer the same outstanding handling characteristics in both disciplines. The swords meet Tinker`s exacting quality requirements and are built in much the same way as his custom pieces. Each blade is forged from 5160 Spring Steel, Marquenched to the desired hardness of 50-53 Hrc while the tang is drawn back to the low 30s Hrc. For the Medieval models the very end of the tang is threaded to fit an allen nut recessed into the pommel which allows for dismantling of the hilt assembly for inspection, to exchange blades if needed, and for anyone wanting to easily customize their grip. Also the Sharp and Blunt blades are interchangeable on all Medieval models. The grips are cord wrapped and leather covered wood and tapered for a comfortable grip. Each sword is supplied with a leather covered wood scabbard with metal throat and chape.
The weight, balance points and blade harmonics are the same for the sharp or blunt versions of each sword! This means you can easily switch from the blunt trainer to the sharpened sword with no problems.
