Description

Details

Magnificent Chu Jian is model after the design of 2,000+ year old Chu Jian specimens excavated during 1950-1980 from tombs dating back to 315 - 221 BC, in regions within the ancient Kingdom of Chu. The Kingdom of Chu was famous throughout the land for its steel swords and Chu Jian's fame was mentioned in multiple historical records. Contemporary with the mature bronze swords, Chu Jian represents an advancement in iron foundry technology and is an example of an early transition from bronze to steel weapons.  

In the hand guard are two inscriptions in ancient bird-worm seal script of the word for gentleman warrior "Shi". The blade has double wide grooves fashioned after bronze swords showing the transitional design from bronze weapon to the first steel weapon. The sturdy and substantial hand feel in spite of its lightweight.
