65MN Spring Steel Han Dynasty Chinese LongswordBe the first one to write a review
Amazing Value - Fully Functional Hand Forged 65MN Spring Steel Blade. A classic two handed Han Dynasty fighting sword.
The Chinese were so ahead of their time that they had two handed swords nearly 1000 years before the West - and this Han Dynasty (221BC to 206AD) sword is a stunning example of how technologically advanced the ancient Chinese really were. Designed to be used primarilty with two hands, but capable of being used with one as the situation dictates, these were versatile and powerful cut and thrust swords of truly amazing quality - many often featuring advanced lamination, folding and differentially hardened edges.
Our reproduction is has none of these advanced features, but simply follows the style and pattern with a beautifully tempered and tough 65 MN Spring Steel blade mounted in cast alloy fittings (ideally they would be brass or bronze, but the value of this sword is mostly in the blade). Weighing only 1.6lbs and balanced about 5" from the guard, for a 30" long two handed sword it is exceptionally fast.
Not just a display piece, this sword is fully functional and an extremely affordable Han Dynasty Sword to round out your sword collection - made available at a very modest price. Includes a free sword display box.
