The concept of the guardian Lion emerged in China over 1800 years ago during the han Dynasty. The Lion, fierce, courageous, loyal and Swift, was the perfect symbol to guard home and hearth. Both decorative and symbolic, it was common to see elegant sculptures of these Lions guarding the homes of the wealthy and aristocratic or even the Gates of the imperial palace and the tombs of the Chinese emperors. Our Jade Lion Series draws upon the same protective reputation, combining ceremonial, "dress" styling with "Battle ready" performance. This makes them appropriate for collectors specifically as well as martial artists in general. The watchful Chinese Lion Motif is cast in nickel-sliver with almost sculptural detail on the heavy guard and pommels. This provides a compelling contrast to the elegant Jade Green color of the cord wrapped handles and matching Rosewood scabbards that are covered in highly polished same (Ray skin) that's dyed to match the handles. The most attention grabbing feature, however, are the blades themselves. Forged by hand and expertly Tempered from our finest Damascus steel, their distinctively subtle swirl pattern bespeaks the elegant beauty of fine craftsmanship combined with the incomparable strength of Damascus steel.

I had my eye on this sword for several months, and finally decided to get it. I was not sorry I did so. The sword is so beautiful and is very sharp. Unfortunately,it wasn't perfect, the handle came a bit unstable, and rattles when I swing the sword. I gave it 5 stars none the less, because the sword is just to beautifully made, and such a work of art, that it well deserves it.
This was the sword that I was looking for. It is very nice in appearance. Well balanced and very sharp.
Not sure where the 5 star ratings come from, this is very disappointing. Twice the price of the last sword I bought, and got it specifically as a balance of a little higher end, but it's nowhere near the quality. There is a gap between the tang and the hilt I can stick my pinky in, and the blade actually wiggles. The steel of the blade has numerous blemishes, and bounces like a diving board. The lion head design looks like Tin, and the sword bag is a very plain, course burlap looking "sack". This is a cheap wall hanger at best. It was shipped in a plain box with no extra padding and no cover around the blade.
I will say the sheath is nice and seems well made. The product also came extremely quickly
