The Hun Yuan sword is crafted in the "Jian" style and is intended as a fully functional sword for the martial artist.
The Paduak wood handle is complemented by a beautifully sculpted guard and pommel in nickel silver,with a central design on the guard that combines elements of Confucianism, Taoism and Hun Yuan.
The Paduak/Nickel Silver combination and the design theme are elegantly repeated in the scabbard. In contrast to the traditional appearance, the blade is forged from Maraging steel, a material that utilizes very advanced heat treatment technology to produce excellent shock resistance and flexibility.
The swords are designed and produced by Paul Chen, under Hanwei's license as the exclusive supplier of swords to the Shaolin Temple. Under the terms of this agreement, Hanwei is permitted to distribute these swords to collectors and is the only company officially allowed to use the Shaolin Temple insignia in association with its swords.
In accordance with the principles of the Temple, Hanwei strives for perfection in the design and production of these pieces, with the goal of combining traditional values and techniques with contemporary design interpretations.
Undoubtedly among the most collectible swords made in China today, each sword is individually serial numbered and certificated.
