The vast majority of Taichi swords currently for sale on the internet tend to be either too heavy or too flimsy. Very few are anything close to what a real Taichi sword should be - until now that is..

Brought to you by Master Michael Ye, the five blessings Ultimate Taichi sword lives up to its name. With stunning brass fittings and a blackwood handle and scabbard, it is far more than just a pretty looking Jian. Weighing from 1.3 to 1.76lbs depending on the blade length selected (available in 26, 28 and 30" depending on your size and personal preference) it feels like a Taichi sword really should - as an extension of your arm, able to change direction effortlessly on a dime.

With just the right amount of flex in the blade from the superior tempering process, it is far from flimsy, yet gives you the feedback you want when thrusting and is guaranteed to delight any serious Taichi practitioner with its aesthetics and its amazing handling (around 1" from the guard).

While this sword is primarily designed for TaiChi, like traditional swords of this style the top 1/3 of the blade is sharpened and can be used for cutting and thrusting practice as required (however there is also an option for it to be unsharpened depending on your personal needs and requirements, select via the dropdown option when ordering).

Do not be fooled by cheap and nasty imitations, this sword is the real deal. Almost never seen out of China due to the uncertain market demand and high expense of production. However, with Forge Direct, you have a rare opportunity to order one of your own with FREE worldwide shipping right here at the SBG Sword Store!
