Cold Steel Gim Sword

Cold Steel Gim Sword
There are two basic types of straight bladed swords used in China. One is fairly long and heavy known as the Wu Jian or "Martial Sword". The other is substantially lighter and called a Wen Jian or "Scholar's Sword".

After studying books and video tapes on the history and use of both swords, we have decided to make our own battle worthy Gim (Wu Jian) for serious collectors and practitioners of Chinese Martial Arts.

The blade of our Wu Jian is made out of 1055 Carbon steel and measures 30" long by 11/2" wide. For cutting and slashing, both edges are quite sharp and they terminate in a strong, useful point. The traditionally styled guard and pommel are cast out of thick sturdy brass and fit snugly on a stout Rosewood handle that is both highly decorative as well as functional.

The Gim Sword comes with an excellent wood scabbard with brass throat, chape and sword rings and can be worn suspended from the belt or slung over the shoulder.
