Description

Hanwei has outdone itself with this piece . the Qi Jian a re-creation of an ancient design that utilized one-piece forging. From pommel to tip . the entire sword is forged from only a single billet of steel. This forging technique results in incomparable strength and balance and still resulting in a clear bell-like tone when lightly struck. The sword carries on the legacy of the Qi nation . a warring state that eventually became part of modern Chine. Legend has it that Feng-Xuan . a famous folk tale character and part of the Qi nation . owned a similar one piece sword and used its ringing in partnership with his singing. The grip of the sword is wrapped in rayskin . a feature matched by the wrap on the throat of the scabbard. This results in a truly beautiful appearance. Qi Jian Forging Process - Two of the many steps required in crafting this unique one-piece sword have already been described. The first step explains the fundamental sword shape after rough forging. Although its size and weight are significantly more than the completed Qi Jian . forging already exhibits the exceptional balance produced by this design. From the rough forging the blade and hilt are further shaped into the finished pattern. After an antique patina is formed on the guard and pommel the blade is polished and the Qi Jian is fitted with the only piece not made from one steel billet - the genuine ray skin handle wrap. Without a doubt . this is a unique item to own. Made by Hanwei.

Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
