King of Yue Goujian Bronze Sword Chinese Early Dynasty Blade
This is a replica of one of the world’s most famous swords, the Sword of Guojian, King of Yue. The Sword of Goujian is an archaeological artifact of the Spring and Autumn period (771 to 403 BC) found in 1965 in Hubei, China. Cast in tin bronze, it is renowned for its unusual sharpness and resistance to tarnish rarely seen in artifacts so old. This historical artifact of ancient China is currently in the possession of the Hubei Provincial Museum. On one side of the blade, two columns of text are visible. Eight characters are written in an ancient script, now known as Bird-worm seal script, a variant of seal script. Initial analysis of the text deciphered six of the characters, "King of Yue" (越王) and "made this sword for [his] personal use" (自作用劍). The remaining two characters were assumed to be the name of the particular King of Yue.
