Hanwei Banshee Cutting Sword

(6 customer reviews)


In stock

Bred in the jungles of Asia, our Banshee sword has its origins in the Thai Krabi and its close cousin, the Burmese Dah. Extremely strong and very quick, the Banshee is a cutting sword first and last, with a slightly weight-forward balance for slashing through jungle growth with ease. The sharpened high-carbon steel blade is heat treated for optimum shock absorption and edge retention, and the spiral-wrapped black leather grip provides excellent handling qualities. The sword comes equipped with a high-retention locking mechanism for safety. The wooden scabbard is finished in matte black, with side rings designed to allow a number of carrying options. A imitation leather shoulder strap is included.

    BEAST When I ordered I received a damaged sheath (probably from shipping), sent it back got a new one with in 2 days! Sword is heavy duty, good balance, a little front heavy which makes it great for taking out targets. Overall Lightweight, comfortable handle, decently sharp, I do like the button on the hilt which keeps the sword in the scabbard while movie through brush or being a silent assassin LOL. Chopped through a fresh tree limb 3″ thick with one hand and the cut was CLEAN! Highly Recommend for a first sword or a durable blade!! Thanks KOA!

    brave little sword I am truly amazed with this little fellow. it is fast and it cuts without fear. ok, handle dont rally need to be round and I have no idea what is “blood grove” there for, but as it is, it works wonderfuly and I did not see any signs of wear on the edge even I cut some pretty hard wood saplings

    This sword is fun and practical. I use it for brush-clearing all the time now. The handle tapers perfectly and doesn’t slip in your hand. The weight distribution makes swinging the blade effortless—front-forward to easily gain momentum but light enough to manipulate direction like it was an extension of your arm. The blade comes extremely sharp and can be readily made even sharper. The only issue I’ve had is a very small chip from a bad swing (sparked it off a large hidden rock beneath some branches and leaves), but the damage was easy to fix. Lastly, I love the locking mechanism—clicks to secure and engages to open perfectly. This is definitely no wall-hanger.
