CAS Hanwei

Paul Chen and his company Hanwei has become one of the best known names in the sword world. Paul Chen grew up in Taiwan where, as a young man, he developed an ongoing fascination for swords and knives. Largely unable to afford antique and custom-made pieces he became a custom maker himself, enjoying success in this field in both Asia and U.S. Samurai swords have acted as the corner stone of Hanwei. The company has gained a tremendous base of knowledge in construction and metallurgical techniques by working with historical pieces. Hanwei's Samurai swords are now regarded as state of the art, and offer the martial artist and collector and unparalleled opportunity to own a fine quality sword.
