This battle ready Tang Dao sword is made of clay tempered 1095 high carbon steel, designed to be perfect for practical Chinese martial arts training. The blade is heat-treated, clay tempered, and quenched to achieve optimal levels of durability and hardness. Clay is applied in different thicknesses to the spine and cutting edge during tempering so that the blade cools at different rates, creating a hard edge for heavy cutting and a softer spine for added shock absorption. The blade is thick, powerful, and full tang. Traditional design with modern construction, this is not your average wushu sword. It is a weighty sword with a hand sharpened edge for practical use, or for serious collectors and Chinese history enthusiasts. It comes with a full genuine rayskin wrapped scabbard and handle and high quality brass fittings. The sword is great for tai chi, kung fu, wushu, cutting practice, and display. It's durable enough for tameshigiri and bamboo. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications vary slightly from sword to sword.
