Additional information

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 and completed with embellished Han swirling cloud motif design.

Please note: Scabbard may some minor cosmetic blemishes such as scuffs and indentations.

    The sword came in perfect condition. The balance and grip make the sword easy to wield in one or two hands. The blade fits into the scabbard well, though it will only wedge into the scabbard if put in one way, not the other. As far as im concerned, its the perfect weapon for me. Now if only there was a video on how to use the brass suspension loop properly. There might be a video.

    Just got this sword a couple days ago and I absolutely love the thing, insanely lively in the hand while still maintaining serious cutting authority especially given the weight of the blade, the scabbard is beautiful although it could be a touch tighter, it has a small amount of rattle that requires some effort to make happen and will fall out if tipped upside down but it’s for sure not the worst by any stretch especially given the price point. I will say the one I got doesn’t have an oval cross section handle, its actually diamond shaped, which isn’t a problem as its still very comfortable and know where the edge alignment is.
