What are Functional Chinese Swords?

Functional Chinese swords are properly produced swords for the Chinese martial arts like Tai chi and Kung fu. These pieces are hand forged by top sword smiths with the practitioner in mind. Unlike display pieces these swords will generally have properly tempered and treated high carbon steel blades. These blades are built to withstand the rigorous training of the martial artist. Along with expert forging the design of these blades is made accurate to the originals from the tang size to blade fastening methods. If you are training in any of the Chinese sword martial arts, the swords found in this section are up to the task.
