Mornin' All

I keep hearing that Hanwei have given up manufacturing their western/european sword product lines. No one I speak to seems to know for sure.

Is this no more than a scurrilous rumour or is there some truth to it?

Regards

It is not true. I talked with them at the Atlanta Blade Show and have had some discussion with one of their sales reps since. They are building inventory so a lot of items are not available - yet. The updated wholesale list shows all their European line so, at some point, they will be back in stock. I was able to obtain a basket hilt broadsword about six weeks ago.

Fear not!
