Known as the "Gentleman of Weapons" this stunning, mastersmith forged Jian is designed for extremely precise thrusting but is more than capable of delivering limb severing, shearing cuts.

This particular piece has an amazingly detailed, folded 1095 damascus steel blade in a classic pattern resembling the Ganoderma muscroom and is sharpened to perfection.

The fittings are solid brass and highly symbolic, feauturing the "4 beasts": The Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermillion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West and the Black Turtle of the North. These 4 beasts, also correspond with the 4 seasons and the 5 elements and the symbolism is repeated throughout all of East Asia including China, Korea and Japan - as well as neighbouring Vietnam - but it all adds up on one thing: a highly traditional design that truly compliments this extraordinary Chinese blade.

Fast in the hand without being the least bit "whippy" - this sword is a modern day classic. Do not be fooled by cheap imitations, this is the real deal.
