Is this jian of superb quality?

Greetings,


Ancient Style Qin Dynasty Tai Chi Sword

IMO this looks great from the pictures - a lot like the project x forge direct offered from this site. But do you think it would be a good purchase? I am situated in Europe, so checking out the sword IRL is not possible.

Thanks for your help.

Well...

I would not really recommend this piece - it is folded steel at a low price point, and too cheap to have been done by one of the Master Smiths in Longquan. There may also be issues with the way it is constructed, so overall it is simply a nice decorative piece.

Not really suitable for Tai Chi or Martial Arts practice. So it all just depends on what you want it for. If it is just as a decorative sword, it should look okay - but I would not trust to cut with it..

Okay
