Product information "Bastard Sword Tinker Pearce sharp"
Michael 'Tinker' Pearce has designed a series of swords made by Hanwei in 5160 steel, which emphasise authenticity, functionality and performance. To satisfy the sparring and cutting needs of Western Martial Artist, each of the 7 styles being made in live (sharp) and sparring (blunt) versions, each sword has outstanding handling characteristics. The carefully controlled heat treating of 5160-steel (Tinker's blade steel of choice) by the 'Marquenching' process produces an excellent combination of toughness and flexibility at a hardness of HRC 50-52 allowing for superior edge retention on the sharps, anti burr and tip-flexing safety features on the blunts. Replacement blades are available for all swords in the series, a key feature of Tinker's designs is the interchange ability of blades within each pair of swords with the exception of the Early Viking, allowing the user to purchase 1 complete sword and a spare blade to enjoy both versions. The Longswords, Bastard and Early Medieval all feature Tinker's recessed sleeve nut mounting system, providing secure hilt retention, tightening and easy blade exchange using the Allen wrench provided. The Hand and a half Swords (Oakeshott Type XV111A) are designed so that the sharp and blunt versions will perform identically offering sparring and cutting with swords that feel and respond in the same way. The sharp sword is produced in two different versions, one diamond section throughout (code: 0165192400) and the other identical but fullered (code: 0165192411) for about one third of its length . Wheel sized pommels are to provide a grip for the second hand, the straight tapering cross provides excellent hand protection. The hardwood-cored grips are leather-over- cord wrap with steel fittings. A leather covered scabbard is included.
