Is this your prototype, or the first finished product back in your hands from Hanwei?

This is the hand-made prototype for the second sword in the series. Still waiting on the Longsword production prototype- Hanwei's has had to nail down a supplier for the steel and get used to an entirely new (for them) heat treat process, so things have been going slower than we'd hoped, but I'm told that I should be seeing the longsword proto very soon.

OK- I shortened the point on the 'sharp' by roughly 1/2 inch because it was too fine and would bend to easily. Now- the sword pictured here is the same sword with the blunt sparring blade fitted. The edges are rounded. I used the fuller to move mass from the center to the edge to make both blades perform as identically as possible. The stats are shown for the sharp with the blunt's stats in parenthesis after.

Oakeshott Type: XVIIIa (n/a)
OAL: 42-3/4 inches (same)
Blade Length: 33-5/16 inches (same)
Blade Width @ Base: 1-9/16 inches (1--5/8 inches)
Blade Width 1 inch from point: 5/16 inch (9-16 inches)
Blade thickness at base: .240 inches (.245 inches)
Blade thickness 2 inches from tip: .65 inches (.82 inches)
Distal taper is convex (straight)
Hilt OAL: 9-3/8 inches
Pommel Type: H
Guard Type: 1 (m)
COG: 3-5/8 inches from base of blade (same)
Blade Node/COP: 20 inches from base of blade (21 inches from base of blade)
Primary Hilt Node: On handle approx 1 inch from cross*
*(sword displays Complex Variable Harmonics)
Weight: 2lb12oz.
