Designed by noted sword smith Michael "Tinker" Pearce and manufactured by Hanwei, the bastard swords have been are made to satisfy the need of every Western Martial Arts practitioner and sword enthusiast. 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 30's Hrc. 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 or to exchange blades and hilt components if needed.
This H/T Bastard Sword come with a custom black leather wrapped grip by Jimbo Curry, and Zurich Fittings from The Printed Armory. Truly a great sword for any Western Martial Arts practitioner or collector!
