  • Padded Training Katana

    This is a two-handed sword, with the blade made of soft, elastic components, which enables you full safety during training. Outer fabric guarantees long life of the product and high resistance for any damage of blade. The Blade has an additional core hardening. This sword is designed for thrusting practice, or for light training in pairs without heavy strength involved. It is not intended to use this weapon to hit any hard, metal or sharp items. Used too much whilst having hard hits while fighting may cause damage to them. The plastic hilt is covered with rubber for stronger and stable grip. Rounded guard (tsuba) is made of plastic, a soft disc with openwork design.

    Safety: For safety reasons, we suggest to use groin protectors and masks for face protection (especially eyes) during the training with this type to the weapon. 

    Important: This type of weapon is designed for light training without the use of heavy protective gear. Hits on hard elements, for example, wooden shields, or metal masks without soft overlays may cause damage of the weapon.

  • Practical Bastard Sword

    By customer request Paul Chen has produced a re-enactment version of our SH2250 Bastard sword. The blade is forged in 5160 high-carbon steel, to minimize burring, and the transverse thickness of the guard has been increased, both to provide adequate strength for re-enactment use and to present a safer profile at the ends of the guard. Another innovation is the provision of an all-leather scabbard, in contrast with the rigid scabbards normally provided with our Practical swords - this is designed both to provide an extra margin of safety when combatants fall on the scabbard in battle and also to minimze the need for replacement scabbards. The sword is supplied with the grip and scabbard in a neutral-colored leather to allow customization to the owners taste.

  • Practical Cup Hilt Rapier

    Fencing in the Renaissance style plays a prominent part in historical re-enactment, combining the quickness of light blades with the structure and spirit of the duel. Designed for the rapier fencer with a preference for the cup-hilt style who wishes to spar in safety, This Paul Chen  Practical Cup-Hilt Rapier from Hanwei fits the bill perfectly. The rapier blade is similar in design to the practical blades for the swept-hilts but the length of the tang is adapted to the cup-hilt. The Hanwei SH2262 Main Gauche matches this rapier.

  • Hutton Sabre

    One of the rapidly growing arts within historical fencing societies is that of sabre fencing in the late 19th century Italian style, originating with fencing masters who were employed to train mounted troops in the effective use of the military sabre. The Milanese fencing master Guiseppe Radaelli, is credited with starting the development of this style, while Salvatore Pecoraro introduced changes and refinements which resulted in the technique finally adopted for sabre at the Military Masters School in Rome. The hilt designs developed by Radaelli and Pecoraro have been reproduced in our fencing sabers, with stainless steel guards and wire-wrapped sharkskin-pattern grips. The high-carbon flex-tempered steel blades By Hanwei closely follow the proportions of the period and are round-tipped for safety. The blade and hilt of the “Hutton” sabre are closer to the style of the true military sabre.

  • Practical Hand-and-a-Half Sword

    1 Review(s)

    The Practical broadswords are all based on authentically styled swords in our Paul Chen collection but they are tailored to meet the needs of re-enactment and stage combat. These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies. The blades are crafted from 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blades are substantial, they are fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics. They feature 1/16” wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tangs are also substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. The end of the tang is riveted over the pommel, which both eliminates any possibility of inadvertent disassembly. The hardwood grips are leather-covered.

  • Roman Pompeii Gladius - Decorated

    The Roman Gladius was the primary weapon of the Roman Legionary and was used in conjunction with the 'Scutum' (shield) and 'Pilum' (spear). Its design was strongly influenced by the swords used by the Iberian (Spanish) Celts. It was predominantly designed as a thrusting weapon and was in use in one form or another from the 4th Century BC to the 3rd Century AD. The Pompeii Gladius takes its name from the archaeological site in Italy where, during excavations, 4 such swords were found. The swords are dated to before 79AD - the year that Pompeii was buried in volcanic ash. The Pompeii Gladius, along with the earlier Mainz Pattern Gladius, would have been issued to the garrison at Hadrian’s Wall. Examples can be seen in H. Russell Robinson’s book "What The Soldiers Wore On Hadrians Wall'".

    Our Pompeii Gladius features a turned wood pommel and bone grip. The straight blade is hand forged from steel and in housed in a wooden scabbard with red leather covering and decorated brass fittings. This sword is not designed or recommended for contact reenactment (fighting) but is favoured by living history enthusiasts.
