The Forge Direct Chinese Laminated Duan Dao.

Scratch and Dent Issue: Blade was warped during heat treatment and could not be corrected. Was accidentally shipped, should not have passed QC. Warp is not significant enough to effect actual cutting performance.

This is a sword that SHOULD never have passed QC..

It is quite a complex laminate of a blade, made from a combination of 1065, T-10, 1045 steels to form a hard protruding edge with a shock resistant core and sides. But whenever ANY blade is heat treated, never mind one with several different steel hardnesses all competing against one another, the blade always comes out less than perfectly straight and it is up to the smith to straighten it out or, if it proves too hard, scrap it and start again..

Well, that is what SHOULD have happened with this sword - but for some reason it missed QC and was sent out with blade that really should have been made all over again from the beginning.
