Scott Rodell cutting jian

Designed by noted martial artist and teacher Scott M. Rodell, this jian provides a purpose-built weapon for the art of cutting in Chinese swordsmanship. Utilizing a special steel formulation and heat treatment regimen, the blade optimizes edge hardness and body toughness, which are ideal characteristics in a cutting sword. The elegantly simple steel fittings reinforce the sword's mission, providing uncluttered lines while still remaining true to tradition. The black leather-over-cranberry rayskin grip ensures secure handling, and the rosewood scabbard with fittings that match the hilt completes this attractive and functional sword.
