I need to know if Hanwei Practical Bastard Swords hilt components are mild steel. Most of Hanwei's swords have stainless steel for the pommels and cross guards, but looking at the photos it appears to be mild :/ Can't tell for sure

Thanks in advance!

I have this one and the fittings appear to be stainless. Neither the crossguard nor pommel have rusted a bit, even when left unoiled in humid conditions and handled with wet hands, a distinct contrast to my Tinker Longsword, which rusted quite a bit under the same conditions.
