CAS/Hanwei Practical Single-Hand

After having played around with the "hand and a half" version of this sword, several of my classmates got curious about the single-hand version. Earlier incarnations of it were rather heavy and difficult to use. The newer generation is heavily fullered, much like the "hand and a half" version. I ordered one to play around with and verify that this was actually the case.

For a single-hand sword, it's light and speedy. Perhaps slightly less so than the "hand and a half" but still a very viable practice weapon that would wear out your wrist too quickly.

As inexpensive as it is, this is a viable option to use instead of a wooden waster. My classmates have been impressed with the apparent value.
