Chinese Sword Tassel Description

The Chinese Sword Tassel have been around as long as the sword in China and they reason for existence is long debated. Attached to the pommel of the sword, they look great and give a real feel of the traditional. But what’s the purpose?Do you need a Chinese Sword Tassel on the end of your Tai Chi Straight Sword?


Some say they are just for decoration but many believe they can be use as a distraction for your energy, to be flicked into the eyes. There has also been some accounts of having small sharp object concealed inside to be used as a secondary weapon. Nowadays though, that is not hugely relevant, apart from applications in forms and drills. A lot of people use the Chinese sword tassel as a guide to their flow with the sword. If the movement is steady and flowing and the tassel doesn’t wrap up around your wrist, you are starting to get somewhere.


The other main reason it that it allows you to adjust the balance of you sword. Even though most people don't do this, you could adjust the tassel so it effects the balance of your Tai Chi Straight sword. Either by changing the length of the string, or the length of the actual tassels. As you practice more and more and gain a deeper understanding of your sword and what you like and desire form it, the Chinese Sword tassel helps makes your Tai Chi Straight sword feel as good as it possibly can. Made from a red dyed synthetic string, the tassel is made from two tassel bulbs tied together with a lucky Chinese Knot, again super traditional.
