The fittings are simple, yet the way they come together makes them perfect - the yellow eyes of the hand guard perfectly contrasting the radiant red copper sheen of the fittings over austere and dark black ebony hardwood. Hand made from start to finish, these fittings help to balance the 2.97lb sword so that it is just 4.72 inches from the guard, giving it a very real sense that this sword is alive - and as a hand and a half style Han Dynasty Bastard Sword, would have dominated the battlefield.

The blade has no expense spared - Master Smith crafted 1095 carbon steel, folded and then differentially hardened with a reinforced hexagonal profile. The end result, a blade with a flexible core and two hard cutting surfaces terminating in a lethal tip for decisive, fight stopping thrusts and cuts.

Few other swords are as distinctive and powerful and this - it is pure class from tip to pommel.


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.

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.
