It's one of their finest and most affordable blades, so its a mystery it's so rarely in stock. But when it is, snap it up - this is an extremely well engineered cutting blade - Hanwei at its finest for entry level swords. It's also been extensively reviewed on SBG years ago by ShooterMike Harris - where he literally shoots it and, to cut a long story short:

I shot .45 ACP caliber bullets directly into the edge of this sword (as if the sword were cutting the bullets) at a distance of about 10 feet. All bullets that impacted on the blade were severed cleanly into two pieces and the damage to the edge was negligible. After cleaning with WD-40, only one slight bend in the edge was obvious, and this was caused by a bullet that impacted mostly on one side and pushed the edge out of its way.

Official SBG Review


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 high-carbon 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.
