A blessed Feng Shui sword for good luck and prosperity with bite! Ancient design from the 'Spring and Autumn Period' (771 to 476 BC).
Made to Order, Ships in 6-8 weeks.
A single handed Jian with a blade that harkens back to the warswords of the Spring and Autumn Period thousands of years earlier - the Sword of the Heavens is a fully functional, 1095 hand forged and folded blade - but the focus of this sword is somewhat mystical and metaphysical than physical - for every element is designed to bring about good fortune, good luck and to cut away any and all obstacles that get in the way of true happiness and tranquility.
And it is not just obstacles that this sword can cut, for the sharpened 28.3" blade is fully functional master smith folded 1095 carbon steel and weighs just 2 and 1/2 lbs - giving it fast handling and enough speed to cut and thrust its way through a wide variety of test cutting targets.
However, as noted, its role as a weapon is secondary to its role as a magnet for good luck and positivity, especially when hung to your side or behind you (never in front) and in such a way that the handle is higher than the blade according to the masters of Feng Shui (Chinese geomancy). Indeed, traditionally, such swords were taken outside at noon on a sunny day and facing north proclaiming “let the sword out of its sheath, here comes the positive chi, there goes the evil spirit, keeps the family safe, A Mi Tuo Fo.” Then re-sheathe it and place it so that the handle towards the owner and the sheathed blade faced and pointed towards visitors.
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!
OPTIONAL ENGRAVING: Select in the dropdown menu if you wish for the sword to have the makers mark and name of the sword engraved on each side or if you would prefer it unadorned. Please note that swords with the makers mark ship much faster as they are generally available from stock.
ABOUT THE FORGE
One of the biggest and most famous forged in China dedicated almost exclusively to producing historical, functional replicas of genuine Chinese Swords - the Baojian (precious sword) Forge joined Forge Direct in late November 2019 with many of the more expensive blades being personally forged by the current owner, level 2 ranked Master Smith Zhangshu Ji.
Established in 1956 with over 50 smiths (including several rank 1 Master Smiths) and 200 workers, this forge was selected in 1972 to produce 4 swords that were gifted to President Nixon during his historic visit to China and is renowned throughout the country as one of the best quality suppliers of premium quality traditional Chinese swords and ancient weaponry.
