In Taoist mythology, one of the 8 Immortals Lü Dongbin, carries a Jian that is ‘’The Sword of Wisdom’’ that would disperse spiritual evils. The scholarly Lü Dongbin is credited with the creation of the ‘’Eight Immortals Sword’’ – a martial art of the Wudang Mountain Taoist Monastaries. The Jian evolved from being a military weapon into a symbol of status and refined culture and was associated with Generals, Emperors, Nobles and Scholars. Today the Jian is a popular sword used by students of Tai Chi and Taijiquan.

This Jian was made in Longquan in the Zhejian province, a region that was central to sword production in the Song Dynasty. The blade is folded high carbon steel of 1045 and 1065, it contains 3,800 layers. Folded steel was a common blademaking method in China as it minimized impurities and melded hard and flexible steels together for a compromise containing both qualities. The fittings are of a zinc alloy, and feature the Yin Yang of the Tao prominently alongside dragons – The Imperial symbol of power. The scabbard and grip are of darkened wood.The sword comes in a ornamented gift box with a sword stand and a wooden-boxed cleaning kit.
