 DOUBLE-EDGE SWORDS (Jian - Manderin / Gim - Cantonese)
   
Hardwood jian are used by practitioners of many Chinese Gung Fu (Kung Fu) styles such as Tai Chi (TaiJi) and Ba Gua. Raven Studios training jian are designed to withstand the rigors of free-sparring and are also well suited for forms and solo technique practice. I feel it is important that each training sword mimic a real swords performance and feel as closely as possible, therefore these hardwood practice swords are constructed with the following qualities:
  • Patterned after real swords. I strive to maintain historical accuracy.
  • Sword blades are made from Hickory. Information about hardwood
  • The blades have a diamond shaped cross section for strength, balance, and performance, and the edges are rounded for durability. (see drawing below)
  • The blades are made with a ricasso for added strength.
  • The hilt is made from your choice of Jatoba, Hickory, or Purple Heart.
  • The guards are locked into the blades and can not slide or loosen.
  • The blades have a full tang and the handles are constructed with laminated hardwood slabs.
  • The handle is oval shaped for maximum comfort and control of the sword.
  • Finished with a linseed and tung oil blend which penetrates into the wood to create a tough and durable surface.
* Please Read before ordering * When ordering any training sword, please let me know if you'd prefer the tip of the blade to be rounded (for sparring safety) or pointed (non-sparring sword for practicing forms). Just make a note on the PayPal from in the "Instructions to Merchant" area, or send me an email. Thanks!
