Recently, I introduced the concept sword representing the new direction ATrim Tactical swords will take, today I would like to show you all the next step in the evolutionary chain:



as the Tac Saber from before this sword's stats are as follows:
weight: 1 lbs 10 oz
POB 3.25"
blade length: 25.5"
over-all length: 32"
grip length: 4.25



the main change here is the shape of the guard. when I talked to Gus about the first one I told him I would like the guard to remain small but that I would like to see some of the sword's Chinese heritage coming through. I didn't want a piece of Chinese furniture but rather something modern that still had just a little bit of the old Chinese jian/dao flavoring in it. personally I think he nailed it.



I finished the mechanical peen differently on this one as well. I made it a ridge blended in with the rest of the pommel that slightly changes the overall shape of the pommel. one of the reasons I did this was so it could be directly compared to the hot-peened pommel I recently did on another sword.






compare to this hot peen:
