Differentially Hardened and folded late Qing Dynasty Jian from the Baojian Forge. Perfect for Taiji or Kung fu training and exhibitions.
Made to Order, Ships in 6-8 weeks.
A beautiful example of the workmanship of the Qing Dynasty, the Supreme Dragon swords blade has distinctly bright edges due to a special technique of differential hardening that is both stunning to look at and hardens the edge while keeping the central core of the blade more durable and shock resistant - a tried and true method that attempts to create the perfect compromise between hard and soft, yin and yang, and avoiding brittleness or softness that will render a sword useless in the heat of combat.
While the subtle interplay of the complex pattern that is the blade is breathtaking, it is complimented by high quality brass fittings - darkened to highlight the many details of the core Dragon theme motif throughout. Weight and balance and TBA, but if you are after a lightweight sword, this is NOT the sword for you and the thick hexagonal blade profile is extremely thick and meaty for maximum cutting power..
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.
