Reviews

A great balance of quality, price and practicalityReview by David

This is a modern take on Ming dynasty jian designs, by a renowned martial artist for practical cutting usage. The design is simple and elegant, and the construction is reassuringly solid, though with just a slight rattle if you strike the guard. The blade is straight and true, tapered with good distal taper for great handling. The blade finish isn't highly polished - but this is meant to be a practical cutting sword. In test cutting, effortlessly cuts PE milk bottles, and (with correct technique) PET soda bottles. Edge has clamshell geometry and is sharp but not over-sharp. Scabbard wood is attractive and flawless and the fittings are simple and solid. The blade slots snugly into the scabbard with exactly the right level of resistance. The leather-bound grip is reassuringly grippy and has room for hand-and-a-half techniques. Love it! (Posted on 04/06/2021)
