I’m impressed
I researched tons of swords before arriving at this Han Dynasty Jian made by JS Sword.
This sword out of the box was very impressive. The guard, pommel, and the scabbard clip are handcrafted of lost wax brass with great detail. The blade came pre-oiled, rust free, and is of high carbon steel. The handle is braided/wrapped with waxed cotton which makes it waterproof and protects the wooden handle beneath from moisture/sweat as most waxed material is designed to do. The entire sword is one from blade tip to pommel absorbing shock from hits evenly. Solid sword indeed.

I’m lucky to get one from a reputable dealer like museum replicas where every other vendor was practically sold out or retailing for more than $300 which is fair considering the quality of this sword.

After receiving this sword i looked at the catalog included and did some research on the manufacturer since their was a lack of info online during my initial research, and it turns out they are one of the best forges in China. This sword is truly a gem!

This sword is amazing. The quality and construction greatly exceeded my expectations. The scabbard is also very nice. I have several swords and daggers from Museum Replicas, and this may be the finest one yet.

First sword I've gotten here, and the first sword I have gotten in a long time. First impression, I was impressed with the little box it came in. Very ornate, specially the wooden scabbard. The craftsman ship certainly shows in the Damascus blade. Very solid feel and I like the small cleaning kit that comes with it. It also came with a small book full of other blades. I hope they stock these too! Thanks for the great blade museum! I will definitely be coming back, now that I'm getting back into sword collecting.

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.
