    Threaded but also welded. Its actually 3lbs, constructed from reforged tank leaf springs. I split thick green hard wood with mine.

    Tang’s for nothing So I’ve had this sword for a few years now and I loved it like one of my children. It seems very sturdy and is definitely made of good steel so I decided to use it for stage combat. Big mistake. I am a heavy hitter and I was fighting against a guy with sword and shield. At one point inthe fight I’m supposed to drive him back with furious blows to his shield (it’s a choreographed fight) and the sword (which had survived several regular duels fairly well) did not stand up to the abuse of hitting the shield. The nice handle was curved in an “S” shape and was no longer centered. I bent it back into shape but felt like the handle was significantly weakened by this. I retired it and switched to a better sword for the rest of the season. After several months I decided to see what was going on with the tang. Maybe I could weld a bar of steel to it to make it stronger? I wasn’t sure. That’s when I realized the entire tang is a threaded rod. I’m not sure where the rod is welded to the blade but to me it didn’t matter. The discs are not steel they are aluminum. The rod does not fit tight inside the wooden rings. There is a small threaded rod in a larger hole that they filled with resin to keep it from rattling. This sword is great if you are cosplaying or larping or whatever, but it is NOT battle ready by any means.
