Handemade sword may have few CM errors. Is a double-edged straight sword used during the last 2,500 years in China. One of the earliest specimens being the Sword of Goujian. Historical one-handed versions have blades varying from 45 to 80 centimeters (18 to 31 inches) in length.
The weight of an average sword of 70-centimetre (28-inch) blade-length would be in a range of approximately 700 to 900 grams (1.5 to 2 pounds). There are also larger two-handed versions used for training by many styles of Chinese martial arts.
Professional jian practitioners are referred to as jianke ("sword guests" or "swordsmen"; a term dating from the Han dynasty). In Chinese folklore, it is known as "The Gentleman of Weapons" and is considered one of the four major weapons, along with the Gun (staff), Qiang (spear), and the Dao (sabre).

Water quenching produces a tougher edge which can also be hardened further more using clay. Blades quenched in oil are still considerably hardened and do have superior flexibility compared to a water quenched blade. In the forging process , the most useful process is the folding, where the metals are forge welded, folded, and welded again, as many as 16 times. The folding removes impurities and helps even out the carbon content, while the alternating layers combine hardness with ductility to greatly enhance the toughness. The less impurities, the harder and sharper the blade will be.We have done cutting tests on the blades. It can cut bamboo(young bamboo tree). Grass mattings and slice paper(The blade should be tilted at 45 degrees). To maximize both the cutting edge and the resilience of the sword spine, a technique of differential heat-treatment is used. The sword is painted with layers of clay before heating, providing a thin layer or none at all on the edge of the sword, ensuring quick cooling to maximize the hardening for the edge. A thicker layer of clay is applied to the rest of the blade, causing slower cooling.
This creates softer, more resilient steel, allowing the blade to absorb shock without breaking. The best quality of high carbon steel is at 1095, the carbon content was 1.03%, and the element contains a small amount of chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, after heat treatment can reach HRc58-60 hardness, toughness is very good, but not resistant to rust, more be applied to traditional european-style hunting knife, large cutting knife and military dao. Such as the United States during world war ii "KA - BAR" saber is in 1095 as the blade material. The vast majority of modern katana and. Wakizashi are the maru type which is the most basic.
With the entire sword being composed of a single steel. The kobuse type is made using two steels, which are called hagane (edge steel). Steel of different materials is forged and welded together to hammer the basic shape of the sword.
This allows the overall blade to have a higher toughness and. Absorb a lot of impact. Reducing the possibility of breaking or bending to some extent. Makes the blade not only has high hardness, but also has super toughness.
