The Twelve Animal Sword is traditional straight sword made by the Shen Guang Long Sword Factory historically known in China for its hand forged swords. Each sword is hand forged so weights and sizes can slightly vary.
The Twelve Animal Sword has a satin finished hollow ground blade made from High Carbon Steel. It has a full-tang making it strong and sturdy. The blade is stiff with virtually no flex. The Twelve Animal straight sword is great for those wanting a stiff blade as it is not as heavy as other blades of this quality. This sword can be used for traditional styles of Chinese Kung fu. The blade has a seven-star Little Dipper constellation engraved on one side and the Chinese characters for "Shen Guang Long" engraved on the other. The scabbard fittings and guard have alloy cast fittings. The handle/scabbard are made from Pear wood that is sanded with a smooth finish and stained with a medium walnut color. The sword fittings and guard show 12 different animals on the front and back side. The animals include the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.
This sword comes with a free carrying case and sword tassel.
