The Chinese Jians blade is crafted using T10 steel. This type of steel is known to be better than carbon steel in terms of durability and hardness. T10 has also gained a reputation due to its toughness. Its blade is also folded. This gives the Chinese Jian subtle grain patterns on its blades surface. This increases the beauty of the sword but doesnt affect its strength, performance, and durability.
This sword has also gone through clay tempering. This makes its blade have a soft spine for resilience and a harder edge to keep its sharpness. It can be achieved via the classic method of clay coating tempering. Also, it makes this Chinese Jian perfect for shizhan or test cutting. Create Your Custom Sword
