This is the kind of sword that many unscrupulous vendors try to pass off as much more expensive than it actually is, simply because it looks like it SHOULD be expensive..!

Most sellers who wanted to try and trick you by saying this is a high end sword would simply have it folded on the cheap, but as you probably know that is the WORST thing you could to to an entry level blade - so we certainly have not - the blade here is forged from 65MN (Manganese) Spring Steel, through hardened and able to flex to more than 45 degrees and return to straight (see the video, also with some tatami mat cutting).

But the best part of this sword is not just how nice it looks, nor how affordable it is and how well it cuts, but the HANDLING. Weighing just 2.1lbs and with a point of balance 3.75" from the guard - in one hand it is fast, but when used two handed is crazy fast and a true joy to cut with.

Historically, it is a Tang Dynasty Sword (618-907AD) which is considered by many scholars to be the high point of Chinese Civilization. In earlier periods such as the Warring States, two handed swords were a battlefield weapon, but at the height of the of Tang Dynasty, the sword became the symbol of the literate gentleman - which they used both for self defense and self cultivation. With such a sword, the legendary Tang swordsman Pei Min was claimed to have been able to cut four arrows in the air while riding from horseback, which is no mean feat!

65MN Spring Steel Tang Dynasty Two Handed Silver Jian
Beautiful sword
By 
The box arrived quickly via UPS with no damage observed to the box. The box was heavy at 6 lbs and it was due to the silk covered box in which the sword resides as well as the heaviness of the sword itself. The sword and sheath were at 4 lbs and the box was 2 Lbs.
To say the sword is impressive, upon first viewing it, is an understatement. It immediately brings ancient Chinese warriors to mind along with the beauty and opulance of the Chinese court. The tempered spring steel blade came sharpened and will bend and spring back to true. This sword looks and feels functional and ready for a fight or as a center piece for your Chinese sword display.
Very pleased with the heavy intricate silvered metals on the sheath and the handle of the sword. The inlaid multiple red gems (probably glass) accented the entire sword giving the sword a richness. A fine sword to own indeed.
