65MN Spring Steel Han Dynasty Sword
IN STOCK & ON SPECIAL
Amazing Value - Fully Functional Hand Forged 65MN Spring Steel replica of a classically styled Han Dynasty Jian from over 2000 years in the distant past.
Few Chinese swords are as evocative as the two handed, Han Dynasty Jian. Designed for war and the product of hundreds of years of trial and error on the battlefields of the Warring States period, it was a surprisingly advanced weapon of its age - and led to the rise to China's first warrior classes and its study was popular among the aristocrats and gentry.
This is a faithful replica of a typical Han Dynasty War Sword. The doubled edged, unfulfulled 29" blade weights only 1.9lbs and is versatile enough to be used in a hand and a half manner. Fittings are themed with a classical 'Phoenix' theme of hand guard and pommel, and is completed by a wood finish scabbard and display box.

The first sword that I bought and I'm very happy with it. I've bought a few swords since for around the same price and it's still probably my favorite.
Mine came in a box that I keep on a table near my desk, and I get a few swings in while sitting at my desk now and then. The sword felt a bit heavy early on, but after a few weeks or so of heavy swings, it now feels rather light.
The sheath has a nice rather feel to it. It's quite entertaining to sheath and unsheath.
Overall, quite happy with my purchase. Worth every penny indeed.
