1566 Carbon Steel "Beater" Sword
The War Sword by Paul Chen is a hand-and-a-half design from the early 14th century. The hardwood grip and elongated scent-stopper pommel make the 32” blade surprisingly easy to handle.
Paul Chen swords are crafted in much the same way as swords were made centuries ago, except now the blades are forged from high-carbon spring steel. The blade finish is far from being polished again more closley replicating what the medieval swordsmith was able to achieve. Except as noted the grips are leather covered hardwood. Fittings are either steel or solid brass. These swords will appeal to the re-enactor who wants a sword with the same appearance as the originals.
Previously this sword was made in the Philippines by Cas Iberia but the current incarnation is Made in China by the Hanwei Forge itself.

This sword is amazing. It's minimalist design is beautiful. It's light enough to wield with one hand but the handle is long enough for me to use both hands when I want some extra power. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I haven't really tested its durability yet. It looks and feels amazing. I highly recommend this sword to anyone who is a fan of medieval weapons. If nothing else, just holding this sword makes you look, and feel, badass!
