The Flying Phoenix Jian by LK Chen replicates the classic Han Jian design which was optimized for the swiftest ‘’Thrust’’ and ‘’Strike’’ techniques of contemporary Chinese swordsmanship. The blade is forged from 1065 and T8 high carbon steel which was skillfully folded into a single blade by the bladesmith. The sharpened blade has a spring-tempered hardness of 55-58 HRc and its diamond-cross section gives it a fine compromise for both cutting and thrusting ability.
The guard and pommel are finely cast from brass in traditional Han stylings and the wood guard is tightly bound in black cord. The scabbard is crafted from lacquered wood with a brass suspension loop.
Please note: Scabbard may some minor cosmetic blemishes such as scuffs and indentations.
