Tai Chi Practice Jian Sword
We offer this model in both flex and stiff bladed version.
Light weight, quick and agile. There are three available sword sizes in our new line of tai chi jian designed for the tai chi practitioner.
The blade is made from stainless steel for ease of maintenance, with dull edges for safety.
For our flex blades the last third of the blade is flexible to the tip. While the rest of the blade is stiff.
Our stiff blades are stiff right the way through.
The sheath and hilt are constructed from alloy fittings and wood done in natural finish. Each comes with a double ball tassel, complete with real agate stone gem.

Handle was a little loose when it arrived, but no problem because this design has a nut at the end you can tighten. I ordered the stiff blade, which is great - it has a little spring to it but isn't floppy. I'm going to try to adjust the balance point by adding a heavier pommel, as I want it right near the hilt and it's currently a few inches up the blade from there. Many people want it there, so this is not a defect, it's designed that way. I'm a beginner with swords, and will probably graduate to a fancier one later, but this is great for me right now.
