Damascus Steel Chinese Han Jian Gim Short Sword Folded Steel Live Blade

The Jian is a beautiful double edged straight sword used throughout the last 2500 years in different styles and in Chinese folklore known as the "Weapon of Gentlemen".  This type of Jian was used in the ancient Han Dynasty as is favoured by collectors and scholars rather than martial artists today.  This particular example sports a full tang through tempered T10 damascus (folded) steel live Blade.  The fittings are cast brass for strength and the grip and scabbard are constructed from heavy near black timber.  This sword is suitable for light to medium cutting and would be great for any blade collector.
