European Single-handed Sword

Price: 871 HKD / 121.94 USD (with flexible tip)

Sold: 104

The Realistic Sparring Weapons version of European Single-handed Sword is modeled after a German 14th century sword that was ideal for the sword and buckler techniques shown in I.33. Compare to the Chinese Jian, which is of the same length approximately, the single-handed sword is heavier overall but with a balance slightly closer to the hand, despite its shorter hilt length. Thus the handling characteristic is vastly different from the Jian. In fact, it is even heavier than the European Bastard Sword in both the weight and balance. Hence, it strikes with awesome power.
