Upcoming Review on Chinese Swords

by Jason

QUESTION: So, this has been a long time coming. I've been sitting on the sidelines poring over everyone's reviews and analyzing every word on your site for months now. Last night I ordered my first "real" sword: the Hanwei Chinese Broad Sword.


I intend to review and write about it in ridiculous detail, and post it here. =)

I am a long-time studier of Chinese martial arts (Jow Ga Shaolin system) and have long used "functional" (read: cheap) martial arts weapons. It will be interesting how a functional blade will work.

Hopefully, I won't cut either of my ears off.

Anyway, as soon as it gets here, I'll get going on that. Once again, thanks for a fantastic site. I really appreciate your down-to-Earth take on things.

Sincerely,

Jason Ferron (username jayferron)

ANSWER: Hi Jay,

Excellent, I look forward to hearing your impressions of it, especially from someone who trains in real Kung fu (I remember reading about Jow Gar Kung Fu quite a few years ago in Black Belt Magazine, a very tough style indeed and one that after I read the article, I REALLY wanted to learn - but alas, there were no Kwoons near me that taught it...)

Anyway, can't wait to read it! :-)

Best,

- Paul

by: Anonymous

so i ordered the china jian sword from chinasamuraisword.com

spring steel blade
wood handle
metal guard

BUT they don't tell you that the pommel is plastic painted to match the metal guard!

they claim all there swords are "real" but how can they be if they're made of plastic!

just wanted to inform someone.
