The Chinese sword, also known as the Jian, is a double-edged straight sword that has a long history in Chinese culture. It is believed to have originated in the Bronze Age and has been used for both combat and ceremonial purposes. The Jian sword is usually made of steel and has a rectangular or square guard and a long grip that can accommodate one or two hands. The blade is usually around 70-100 cm long, and it's designed for both cutting and thrusting. The Jian sword is considered as one of the four major weapons of Chinese martial arts, alongside the spear, the staff, and the saber. It is still used in certain martial arts today such as Tai Chi and Kung Fu.
