The Five Tiger Sword comes from China’s famed Dragon Well Forge. It has a solid tempered-steel blade with a flattened-diamond cross-section that is 1.75” wide at the forte. The handle is adorned with five tigers in relief, four on the guard and one on the circular pommel. The scabbard has four matching fittings bearing eight more tigers, over dark heavy-grain hardwood. Comes in a latched presentation box. This hefty spectacular sword is suitable for display or practice.
29“ blade, 38.5” overall, weight (sword alone): over 2.8 lb (note that there might be slight variations as each sword is handcrafted).
