About Us

 

Longquan of Zhejiang Province is a town poetically suited, and historically known for the art of swordmaking

 

Coined as "The First Sword" 第一把剑, the Longquan Sword began it's legacy over 2,600 years ago, in the Spring & Autumn period (771 to 476 BC)

 

It all started when the legendary swordsmith named Ou Yezi 歐冶子 forged a sword named Longyuan at the foot of Qingxi Mountain, an area with abundant iron ore, cold springs for quenching and stones for grinding blades

 

The sword forging technique became the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage and the town was marked a historical cultural city

 

The art of swordmaking was never lost in Longquan, in fact the small, lush mountainous town is still famous locally and abroad for the quality of their swords

 

The methods of traditional forging and hand crafting were passed down and improved from generation to generation and are now available to you
