If you are looking for an affordable Jian for martial arts applications - THIS would have to be the sword for you.
The plainer twin to the fastest and best handling Jian offered to date, the Golden Peony - this version, the more affordable yet still quite ornate Classic Peony Jian is the perfect balance between looks and raw functionality. The 1095 carbon steel, mastersmith forged blade is folded in the traditional style to give the steel an attractive, Damascus pattern and then professionally polished to bring out the detail and sharpen the edge until it is paper cutting sharp.
Designed primarily for precision thrusts the blade is also capable of shearing cuts and is balanced for true martial arts applications - and with a low point of balance (3.93" from the guard) and weighing in at 2.86lbs, it perfectly fits the requirements of most Chinese sword schools.
The scabbard and the hilt is richly decorated with peony themed fittings - the Peony symbolizing opulence, beauty, honor and status in traditional Chinese culture. The scabbard and the handle are both made from thick, black ebony wood - both strong and attractive.
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!

The Peony Jian may be the Forge Direct entry level Jian, but nobody would ever guess it isn't the best. If you tell your friends it is the best, then they will believe it is the best. I love mine. And I love SBG. I hope they stay around forever, so I can always have access to these beautiful swords.
