Dragon King Wushu-Style Flexible JianBe the first one to write a review
High Quality, Unsharpened Flexible Jian for Wushu practitioners
For the Wushu or Kungfu sword practitioners seeking a sword of quality beyond the flea market and el-cheapo wall hangers, Dragon King delivers the goods in the new Wushu-Style Flexible Jian. The 28 1/2" blade of the Kungfu Jian is similar in flexibility like a wushu style but not quite as thin and features a sunflower scrolling blade etch just off the guard and a reinforcing ridge the entire length. The composite handle contrasts the matte stainless steel guard and open pommel that will accommodate a tassel if you wish to add one. The balance point rests perfectly at the guard. At 39” overall length and 1 lb 10 oz weight, the Wushu-Style Flexible Jian flows comfortably in your hand and balances beautifully. This piece comes with a matching caramel colored composite scabbard with matte stainless steel accents and chape.
About Dragon King
The famed artisans of Dalian have returned to show to the sword world what quality, craftsmanship and ingenuity can produce under the superlative leadership of a true avant-gardist. By the guidance of master designer, Frenchie Jin, the next generation of cutlery enthusiasts will taste the steel of the fabled golden age of swords.
Ever the student of the arts, Frenchie Jin combined the processes of contemporary mechanical construction and modern science with the classic arts, ancient aesthetics and philosophical imagery to produce many of the legendary pieces known today. Having designed over 600 different cold weapons in his 20-year career, to say that he and his team have mastered and advanced their craft would be an understatement.
The Dragon King brand does not represent a company that just manufactures products but embodies a group of artisans who have been adeptly trained to duplicate ancient skillsets that can't be automated by machines on an assembly line. Not every blade that is forged becomes a sword. Not every casting that is poured becomes a component of a greater piece. The goal for improvement and innovation starts every day under Frenchie's guidance.
Not confining their talents to sword making alone, the Dragon King team plies their abilities also to the production of knives, jewelry and other high end art-crafts. And not just in steel alone, these artisans craft wood and leather among many other materials and alloys. Our journey together has only begun, but the fruits of that labor are coming to bear.
