Here's a chance to create a unique look to your Hanwei Tinker Bastard Sword - Mike Jia from The Printed Armoury presents his latest creation, a mild steel curved guard and pommel set designed from the ground up to replace the fittings on your H/T Bastard sword OR for building one from scratch using an H/T Bastard Bare Blade
- Crossguard, Writhen pommel, and hex nut included
- Made out of Mild Steel
- Unfinished/unpolished - you will have to do some sanding to get rid of the rough texture and casting gates (if any were left behind from the forge).
- Choice of either a Fishtail or Writhen pommel
- Handle and sword blade sold separately
Bastard bare blades available here:
The Printed Armoury has created an online site to help you design 3D printed grips for your project sword... please note that the files created on the site still need to be sent to a 3D printer an then either wrapped in leather by yourself or by someone knowledgeable to do so. LG Martial Arts has the expertise to have the grips printed and wrapped in leather to the customer's requests. Please email us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can find the online site here: Online 3D Grip Generator
** Disclaimer: the original length of the grip will not fit using these upgraded fittings, which means you will most probably have to get a custom made grip using the the link above, which also provides locations where to measure once the guard and pommel are in place. Also, the fittings themselves may require some file work to fit onto the tang. This is normal since the H/T swords are mass produced and may have slight variances on their tangs. Lastly, the original scabbard will not fit with the new guard - you will either need to modify the scabbard or get a new one made for the sword.
