The Scarlet Sunrise Jin Jian pairs a finely tapered blade with vibrant red-hued wood to create a sword that handles as elegantly as it looks. A “swordsman’s sword”, the Scarlet Sunrise is responsive, agile and easy to point and its lengthy blade allows a skilled wielder to dominate the middle ground between themselves and their opponent in the duel. The blade is crafted from 65 Mn High Carbon steel with a diamond-shaped cross section to impart suitable rigidity for a powerful thrusting blade. Though the blade profile is slim and focused on the thrust it can deliver a quick cut or slash with surprising capability. The blade hardness is 54-55 HRc and the sword is tempered to a good compromise between flexibility and rigidity.
Though the sword can be ably handled with a single hand the grip has length for a second hand if desired. The guard and pommel are well-cast from brass and match well with the polished Redwood grip. The sword is paired with a well-carved scabbard of matching wood with brass fittings and a brass suspension loop.
