At least i think may be broken...
when i hit the pommel and the blade starts to shake, the sword starts to make one sound like there is something loose...whole handle was moving and the pommel...
so i glue it up with resin. the pommel and the handle to the cross guard is glue up with resin
but still something sounds like loose. around the cross guard
it is possable to tang be broken somewhere at the middle of the handle and still holds up?

its a hanwei hand and a half sword
he makes a sound of something loose around the guard. Because i glue it up only outside the handle. and inside may be is still have space between guard and the blade. But i am not sure . i need to cut the wooden handle to see...

Strange here , is when i put the sword on the ground and hold it in my hand with his point on the ground...he don't make sounds of loose parts....

If this is an old Hanwei, like this model:

Then I would not have used it much to start with!

This is a much better and more reliable product:

Either way however if the blade is able to move, that means your tang is almost certainly severed at some point within the handle. It should not be considered a functional sword in any sense and be restricted to display only unless you can disassemble it and have it properly welded together by an experienced metal-worker.

maybe is not broken just have space between cross guard and the blade inside the handle, if the tang is broken i thing the blade will fall off. i dont know.
