The Practical Tai-Chi swords from Hanwei have been developed in response to many requests for a quality Tai-Chi sword for everyday practice. The functional sword features three blade lengths, to suit the individual requirements of the Tai-Chi practitioner. All models feature steel guards and pommels, plated to harmonize the color scheme of the sword. The blades are fully tempered high-carbon steel with a flattened-diamond blade section that is moderately stiff while allowing for some flexibility. The Practical Tai Chi has a blade length of 28",30" or 32". Aprox. 1.4 lbs.
