The Jian is a double-edged straight sword used in China for 2,500 years. The first Chinese mention of the Jian dates back to the 7th century BCE during the Spring and Autumn period. Historical one-handed versions have blades ranging from 45 to 80 centimeters (18 to 31 inches) in length and weighing approximately 700 to 900 grams (1.5 to 2 pounds). There are also larger two-handed versions used for training in Chinese martial arts.
Professional Jian practitioners are called "jianke" ("sword guests" or "swordsmen") dating from the Han dynasty. In Chinese folklore, it's known as "The Gentleman of Weapons" and is one of the four major weapons along with the Gun, Qiang, and Dao.
The Han Jian is a type of Chinese sword used during the Han dynasty (202 BC – 220 AD). It has a long, slender blade with a sharp point and curved edge, and a hilt typically adorned with intricate designs and a hand guard.
Han Jian swords were prized for their cutting ability and used in both battles and ceremonies. They represented wealth and status, often given as gifts to officials. Today, Han Jian swords are popular among collectors and martial artists for demonstration and sparring, but caution and proper training are necessary due to their sharpness.
