One of the most attractive and striking Han Dynasty swords ever made - the Imperial Dragon Jian features a meaty 1095 forged and folded blade with ornate Imperial Dragon themed brass fittings.
A relatively heavy two handed Jian, while some extra muscle may be needed to fully utilize this sword, as a piece of functional sword art this sword excels - for it is folded using a technique similar to pattern welding to produce a symmetrical 'Duramen' (heartwood of a tree) pattern that has to be seen to be believed.
Designed primarily for precision thrusts the blade is also capable of shearing power cuts.
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.
