This is our favorite design, and the most historically accurate, fully functional authentic replica of any Chinese sword ever seen on the market. The first version, which was a slightly stripped back version, was incredibly popular. Now we bring it to you in all its glory - and at the best possible price we can do for a sword that has been sold to discerning and wealthy Chinese collectors for over US$10,000..

The original it is based upon was a sword owned by the Ming Dynasty Emperor Yong Lo and presented to Tibet and dated to the year 1403AD. Emperor Yong Lo was singlehandedly responsible for changing Chinese History, moving the capital to Beijing, directing the construction of the Forbidden City and greatly expanded the Imperial Examination System - making him arguably one of the most influential Emperors ever.

The mark II version spares no expense in recreating a sword fit for an Emperor. The blade is folded 1095 carbon steel and results in a strong, sharp and amazingly effective cutting and thrusting sword that is both stunningly beautiful yet 100% functional. The fittings are made from solid brass with ebony wood of the highest quality, with the blade flowing like a tongue of steel from the mouth of a Chinese monster face and the pommel features a chiselled Chinese Dragon. The handle has a FULL wrap of genuine rayskin and the scabbard is a work of art in its own right, with highly detailed brass casings over high polished, scented ebony wood.

Simply an amazing piece suitable for high level martial arts practice, cutting and display - do not be fooled by inferior imitations - this is the real deal and available for just a fraction of the price we were originally looking at when we first encountered this stunning design!
