The Hanwei Tinker Great Sword of War is designed and crafted purely as a cutting sword and, weighing in at a little less than four pounds, it is built to excel on heavy targets. The long grip provides excellent leverage and static and dynamic balance are to Tinkers demanding standards. The sharpened blade is again forged in 5160 and marquenched to HRc50-52. The hilt is retained by Tinkers signature recessed sleeve mounting system, providing secure retention and easy hilt tightening.
