Battle Sword of the Han Dynasty
Click to Review
The Han Dynasty lasted from 206 BC to 220 AD and was known as The Golden Age in Chinese history. This magnificent sword has a hand-forged, high carbon steel Damascus blade with both a dragon and Chinese character etched into it, symbols of the Han Dynasty 206 BC - 220 AD. The hilt consists of a highly detailed bronze twin phoenix guard and matching masterfully sculpted pommel. A Palisander wood scabbard with silk braid wrapping and bronze fittings completes the stunning beauty of this piece. Includes a wooden dragon and phoenix pattern covered display box and cleaning kit. An absolutely beautiful sword that truly honors the gallant warriors of old. Blade is sharp.
- Overall: 34"
- Blade: 23" long, 1-1/2" wide, 1/4" thick
- Wt: 3 lbs
This thing is a beauty. Comes with a fancy looking, admittedly cheap, case and some old fashion oiling and polishing products in a fancy looking, admittedly cheap, wooden box, and it even has some manuals on how to maintain, clean/polish your sword. It has more bells and whistles as most Museum Replica swords, its scabard is also much nicer then the simple (but very functional!) leather scabbard the Windlass steel crafts come in, its made of hard wood with a decorative belt clip made of sturdy metal. Its hard not to like this little beauty. Its pretty expensive and Id like it if it was a tad bit sharper, but all in all, great purchase! I hope MR stocks more Chinese swords from this seller, since this one comes with a manual of a whole bunch of other swords of the same company.
