Hang fold forged Damascus + inserted blade Kun Wu Jain.
This jian was made for one of my client but he was not able to complete the purchase and therefore was kept in storage for a year. One of my friend who currently own it asked me if I can give this sword a inspection a clean -up if necessary, and take some photos of it, as he might want to sell it in near future.
This sword was hand fold-forged Damascus with a 1060 high carbon steel inserted blade. Carefully water quenched and tempered
Nice solid brass fittings with good engravings, red sandalwood sheath and handle with nice nature color and grain.
Quite a remarkable piece with good combat sword balance. I have not give the blade full test but it seems to be able to shave normal 1050 carbon steel swords with ease.
