This Jian has a blade crafted from 5160 / D2 high carbon steel that was tempered to an HRC hardness of 58-60. The pommel and guard are blackened metal and the grip is polished wood. The sword comes with a wooden scabbard with blackened metal fittings and hanging rings.


The four traditional weapons of China are the ‘’Qiang’’ (Spear), the ‘’Gun’’ (staff) the ‘’Dao’’ (Saber) and the ‘’Jian’’ (double-edged sword). Among them the Jian was considered the ‘’Noble’’ or ‘’Gentleman’’ of these weapons - likely due to its association with Chinese emperors, generals and noble officials. It was regarded as a more difficult weapon to master than the Dao and was thus a status symbol that implied martial prowess.

Due to its ennobled past and its incorporation as sword used for forms in Tai Chi - it is easy to see why the Jian is regarded in Chinese culture as the ‘’Scholar’s sword’’ Some of the Eight Immortals are routinely depicted with the Jian and the bodhisattva Mañjusri in China possesses a Jian called the ‘’Sword of Wisdom’’.
