Praying Mantis Sword
This was a custom sword created for a dojo in Chicago. The preying mantis was their logo and they wanted a Thai Chi sword for members incorporating it as a hilt. The green handle is cut and shaped like bamboo. A mantis looks in each direction, every joint and detail is visible in their bodies. The pommel has a disc with Chinese characters, nestled in a grove of bamboo. The sensei's sword had a sphere in the pommel and special characters down the blade. Aprox. 15 swords in all were made made.
