Han Jian, as the name suggests, is a steel sword that flourished in the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.–220 A.D.). As the development of the iron industry in the Han Dynasty broke the limit of the length of the bronze sword, the Han jian was increasingly lighter, thinner, longer and sharper, it had already replaced bronze swords and widely used in the military in the Western Han Dynasty. As the last battlefield sword, Han Jian has an irreplaceable position in the history of Chinese swords.





Its own design reflects the style of the atmosphere in the Qin and Han Dynasties, giving people a sense of righteousness and domineering.


Chinese sword has always been straight and upright. In traditional consciousness, not only do people have to behave properly, but even the sword must be upright. The jian blade is straight and upright, it looks plain and unpretentious when sheathe the sword, and fails to show restraint when draw the sword out. In a manner of speaking, Han Jian represents the gentle, courteous and courteous style of China's Confucian culture.



In the Han Dynasty decorative lacquerware, the black background red pattern was very beautiful, the color matching was reasonable, and the patterns are exquisite and abstract. In addition to the decorative surface of the animal face, moire, valley pattern, especially the embossed Panchi Pattern (carved patterns of sinuous dragons/lizards) is the most distinctive. Its layout is reasonable, vivid and clever, smooth and delicate grinding, gorgeous and fine.



The dagger is about 50-70 cm long. The blade is slightly wider, the ridge is slightly thinner. It is decorated with copper grids. The middle length of a Han Jian sword is about 70-90 cm. The long Han Jian sword is 100-110 cm, and the length of the sword stem is generally not more than 20 cm, and the width is about 3.0-3.5 cm. The common one is about 3.1 cm. The blade changes from narrow to wide, and has obvious waist close to the tip of the sword (the purpose of the waist is to reduce the weight of the front of the blade, so that the center of gravity moves back, so the longer the sword is, the more obvious it is). The thickest part of the blade is generally about 0.7 cm, and the most flat part is less than 0.1 cm. The length of the super long sword is more than 120 cm, and a few reaches 160 cm. 


In the production and collection of Han-style swords, more consideration was given to their appearance and whether they met personal preferences.
