This is a well-made folded steel Chinese sword, following the traditional forging process. The blade is very sharp and folded 12 times resulting in 4,096 layers for superior strength and flexibility, also creating the beautiful grain pattern on the blade. Both edges of the blade are fully sharpened. It comes with a Suanzhi Mu (hard wood) scabbard and handle with high quality tiger themed bronze fittings. It is a very good choice for martial arts students, gifts, cutting practice, and display. It is durable enough for cutting tameshigiri and bamboo. Each sword is individually handmade so specifications vary slightly from sword to sword.
