Wen Zhong was a senior advisor to the legendary Zhou Dynasty King Goujian and governor of Yue. This sword is a fully functional replica in modern steel, folded and differentially hardened to perfection and typical of the type of blade you would expect to find at the hip of a high ranking official during this turbulent and rather violent era of Chinese history.
With solid brass fittings and handle, and a substantial ebony wood scabbard with matching brass accents, it is a very attractive example of this sword type. Primarily designed for a deep, fight ending thrust these swords were also quite capable of shearing cuts with the extra hard and sharpened edge.
While swords of this era were remarkably advanced for their time, with a shock absorbent core of mostly copper with a hard tin alloy at the edge, the modern version is made from expertly folded 1095 carbon steel and differentially hardened for the kind of strength and performance the ancient swordsmiths could only ever dream of..
Do not be fooled by cheap and nasty imitations, this sword is the real deal. Almost never seen out of China due to the uncertain market demand and high expense of production. However, with Forge Direct, you have a rare opportunity to order one of your own with FREE worldwide shipping right here at the SBG Sword Store!
