Jian swords, also known as Chinese straight swords, are one of the most iconic weapons in Chinese history. A jian sword is a double edged blade that has been in use for the last 2,500 years of Chinese history. These swords were used for thousands of years by warriors, scholars, and martial artists in China, and have a unique design that sets them apart from other types of swords. While it was first mentioned in writing during the 7th century BCE, it was still in use after the invention of guns and cannons.

A typical han jian blade measures anywhere from 18 to 31 inches long and can weigh between 1.5 to 2 pounds. While this Chinese jian is generally wielded with one hand, some jian are for heavier two-handed styles that are used in some Chinese martial arts. At Swords of Northshire, we offer a wide range of swords that are handcrafted by skilled artisans using traditional techniques.

One of the key features of a han jian sword is its straight, slender blade. This design provides the sword with its agility and precision, making it an ideal weapon for close combat and intricate swordplay. The blade is typically made from high-quality materials such as folded steel or high carbon steel, which gives the sword its sharpness and durability.

The jian is also known as “The Gentleman of Weapons” in Chinese folklore and is considered one of the five major weapons including the dao (sabre), gùn (staff), qiang (spear), and halberd. Originally, jian were made of bronze, but today, the Chinese jian sword is made from a variety of carbon steels. At Swords of Northshire, our jian are made of 1095 high carbon steel, folded Damascus steel, or clay-tempered steel. Explore our collection of Chinese swords for sale today to find the perfect jian for you.

FAQs

A katana is a japanese sword characterized by a curved, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands.

The katana is generally defined as the standard-sized, moderately curved Japanese sword with a blade length greater than 23.86 inches. It is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands.

Western historians have said that the katana was among the finest cutting weapons in world military history.

Having a regular cleaning routine in place is key to maintaining your katana.

You can purchase a traditional sword cleaning kit that will have everything you need. There are three steps: removing oil, polishing the blade, and oiling the blade.

Using a sheet of rice paper from the kit or soft cotton cloth, remove any oil that is still on the blade from the previous maintenance. Take the powder ball and tap it lightly against the blade about every two inches or so along its length. Take a fresh piece of rice paper and rub the powder over the blade to polish it. Do this until both sides of the blade have been polished and the powder completely removed. Take the bottle of oil and apply a few drops along the length of the blade on each side. Use a fresh piece of rice paper to spread the oil evenly on the blade.

The most iconic and well known of all the Samurai swords; the katana is distinguished by its long blade and handle that is made to accommodate two hands and strike from a large distance. It has a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard. The katana has a set of dimensions that separate it from other samurai swords. A traditional katana will measure 3 to 4 feet in total length, with the hilt taking up one-fourth of the total and a characteristic curvature of more or less than 1 inch.

A full tang katana is the sword where the tang extends to almost the whole length of the handle, which makes the blade and the handle the same piece of metal. This gives to the sword certain rigidity and makes it a very solid piece to enjoy.

Full Tang katanas are handmade swords. They can be made of various stainless-steel types according to the Carbon Concentration. The forging is the essential part of the production because it allows the samurai sword to be solid and relatively light. Commonly, the piece of metal is repeatedly heated by fire and hammered while the metal is being folded. The mounting of the different parts is a very delicate operation that has its origins deep in the Japanese civilization. Samurai are used to cherish their Katanas as their trusted partners, and they handle them with love and care.
