One of the best, hardest to made Windsteel Swords on the market. As owned by famous Chinese Television and Movie Producer Zhang Jizhong. From the Baojian Forge.
Made to Order, Ships in 6-8 weeks.
During the Han Dynasty (approx 206 BC–220 AD) the Jian of the warring states period became more refined, and swordsmanship became a fine art practiced by artisocrats and wandering swordsmen and women alike.
This is one of the finest replicas of a Han Dynasty Jian ever made available outside of China.
For a start, the blade is Master Smith forged Windsteel (also known as feathersteel) made from 1095 carbon steel using a unique and specialized method of folding to produce a subtle windswept feather like pattern that ripples across the surface of the blade like water. To compliment it, each steel component is made from folded Damascus steel - with an austere silver and black theme achieved by the silk cord handle wrap and imported Brazilian Black ebony wood.
Truly a Masterpiece - one of these exact swords was purchased by the famous Chinese TV and movie producer Zhang Jizhong. And while it is priced well out of reach of the average collector, truth be told, it is worth every penny for the sheer skill and intense concentration required to make such an elaborate yet simple piece.
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.
