Special Note:

Rooted deeply in Chinese culture going back to the Neolithic age and first finding expression during the Shang and Zhou dynasties as a monster mask on bronze ritual vessels, the legend of the taotie still manifests in modern cutlery on eating utensils and plates. The Taotie (gluttonous monster) consumes permissively and according to myth eventually human flesh. Punished by the gods for his overindulgence, as an ancient myth to others, the gods took away his body and jaw so all he can do was eat constantly, leaving nothing but a head and gaping mouth. Built for Martial Artists.

    The Art of Chinese Style Sword Making

    The forging of a Chinese sword is a subtle and careful process, an art that has developed over the centuries as much in response to stylistic and aesthetic considerations as to technical improvements.


    3,000 years ago, the bronze swords were created during Western Chou dynasty around 1122-770 B.C., the iron swords with the bronze handle were created during Warring States Period around 475-221 B.C., the iron and steel sword has replaced the bronze during Han Dynasty around 206 B.C. - A.D. 220.


    In A.D. 265, swords are replaced by sabers for military weapons. The single edged swords are easier to wield than the double-edged swords. Swords now assumed multiple roles such as power, rank, symbols of honor, and decoration.


    Today, swords are still being made by modern artisans. They continue to hold a unique place in Chinese culture; some pursue the traditional methods, while others apply modern tools, techniques, and materials to the craft. A great number of commercially available swords are being made in China and Cambodia with modern tools and materials employing traditional methods.


    Another reason for the great popularity of the Chinese swords is that an authentic Chinese sword, handmade in China, can easily cost US$12,000 to $25,000 and up. Chinese made production level approximations are typical $1,000-$2,500 for something reasonably traditional.
