Han Jian Dragon Sword - High Carbon 1095 Steel - 30"

Product Description

Discover the legacy of the Han dynasty with our meticulously crafted Han Jian Dragon Sword. This double-edged straight sword, with its roots tracing back to the mid-third century BC, epitomizes the essence of ancient Chinese swordsmanship. Unlike the curved Dao swords that emerged from the Song dynasty, the Jian sword parallels the European longsword in form and function.

Historical Significance:

The Jian sword, originally forged from bronze, transitioned to wrought iron and steel during the late Warring States period, adopting its modern appearance. Revered by both professional swordsmen and aristocrats, sword fencing was not just a livelihood but a celebrated pastime. Although the comprehensive 37-chapter manual known as the "Way of the Jian" has been lost to time, the legacy of the Jian sword endures.

Chinese swords, including the Jian, influenced neighboring cultures, finding their way to Japan between the third and sixth centuries AD, before being succeeded by Korean and native Japanese swords by the middle Heian era. Measuring between 27 and 43 inches, the Jian sword is a symbol of balance and precision. Our Han Jian Dragon Sword, at 30 inches, embodies this rich heritage, adorned with intricate dragon imagery on the guard and etched into the blade.

Blade Material:

Crafted from high carbon 1095 steel, this sword boasts a carbon content of 0.95%, one of the highest for any type of steel. Renowned for its exceptional hardness and edge retention, 1095 steel offers a Rockwell Hardness of 56-58 HRC. The combination of 1095 steel with softer steels ensures a perfect balance of hardness and flexibility, making it an ideal material for sword crafting.

Sword Details:

  • Handle Material: Wood with Brass Bolsters
  • Overall Length: 30"
  • Rockwell Hardness: 56-58 HRC
  • Sheath: Wood Sheath
  • Blade Material: 1095 Steel

Elevate your collection with the Han Jian Dragon Sword, a testament to ancient craftsmanship and timeless elegance. Whether for display or practice, this sword is a tribute to the storied past of Chinese martial arts.

Han Jian Dragon Sword (high carbon steel)

Beautiful sword, well balanced, quite heavy but from the handle looks like it may be meant to be used two handed. Historically accurate and a sharp blde. Aesthetically very plaesing.
