The Practical Basket-Hilt Broadsword is built for the re-enactor. The basket is identical to the edged version (SH2002), but the blade is unsharpened, with 1/16 safety edges and rounded tips, complying with the combat rules of many re-enactment societies. The blade is crafted at Hanwei in 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which reduces edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. The scabbard is finished in matte black, ready for owner customization if desired.

  1. Mike Roth

    Not safe for sparing Looks awesome. It’s a great prop but that’s all I have now. It’s far too stiff and the blade is only slightly dull. It’s not safe for sparing with.

    Amazing basket, poor over weighted blade

    get this, a tinker basterd or arming blade and grind the tang to fit and you will have the best basket on the market.

    If you see this Hanwei: free idea, way more practical to fit it with a tinker blade!
