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" and was primarily carried for personal self defense. After studying books and video tapes on the history and use of both weapons, we have decided to make our own battle worthy Gim (Wu Jian) for serious collectors and practitioners of Chinese Martial Arts. The blade of the Gim is made out of 1055 Carbon steel and measures 30" long by 11/8" wide. For cutting and slashing, both edges are quite sharp and they terminate in a strong, useful point for stabbing.
