PC2295 -- Qi Jian

From the master swordsmiths of the Hanwei forge comes the Qi Jian, a re-creation of an ancient design that utilized one-piece forging. The entire sword, from pommel to tip, has been forged from a single billet of steel. This forging technique provides unparalleled strength and balance while exhibiting a clear, bell-like tone when lightly struck.

The sword’s name originates with the Qi nation, one of the many warring states that eventually formed modern China. Legend has it that Feng-Xuan, one of the Qi people and a central character in a well known folk tale, possessed such a one piece sword and would use its ringing quality to accompany his singing.

The sword’s grip is rayskin wrapped, a feature matched by the wrap on the throat of the scabbard, making for a stunningly beautiful presentation.

Qi Jian Forging Process -

Above you can see two of the many steps required in creating this exceptional one-piece sword. The first shows the basic sword shape after rough forging. While it’s size and weight are considerably more than the finished Qi Jian the forging already exhibits the exceptional balance this design allows. 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. Truly a unique piece.

Made by Hanwei.
