Dynasty Forge’s Imperial Qing Jian has a folded blade composed of three different high carbon steel finished to a near-mirror polish. The blade is vibrant with the ripple-like patterns of the folded 1060, 1080 and 1095 steels - the merging of these steels of varying hardness incorporates softer, shock-absorbing steels with harder steel that resists dulling to create a blade that is a compromise between these two desired qualities.

Folding steel has a very long history in China and it was both used to not only combine steel properties, but it also helped purify the steel. Purifying steel is no longer necessary as pure steel of excellent quality is available to swordsmiths on the market, but the folding process creates beautiful patterns that link the sword and the skill in its creation to the bladesmiths and swords of the past.

The intricately geometric guard and pommel and the blade collar are crafted from brass. The grip is of polished, carved wood. The sword is matched with a companion scabbard of carved wood with brass fittings and a hanging cord.

This Jian is heavily inspired by a series of historical swords crafted for the Qian Long Emperor at his order and by his design for the royal family. Thirty of these immaculate swords were created and were organized into three types: Heaven (Tian), Earth (Di) and Man (Ren).
