Grip wrapping in progress

Hickory jian and dao with Chinese grip wraps

This style of grip wrapping with a central loop was a favourite during the Qing Dynasty. It was a style used by civillians, by the military and even by the Emperor. Sabres in the Imperial collection at the Palace Museum all have yellow grip wraps This was a colour of Rank and was worn exclusively by the Emperor and the Princes. Military grip wraps were usually either green or blue, as can be seen in period portaits of military Officers. Aside from yellow being prohibited, there were no rules governing the colour of civillian grip wraps.

● The centre of the wooden grip is reduced by the thickness of the cord. This ensures that the cord finishes flush with the wood and tha the finished grip is the right thickness.

● The wood is then sealed with shellac. This stabilises it agaisnt changes in humidty and helps to rpevent the wraps becoming loose due to shrinkage of the wood.

● Each individual winding is glued to prevent the cord from slipping round the handle during usel. The central loop is left unglued.
