Product information "Jade Lion Dagger"
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 samé (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.
A perfectly scaled down version of the Gim, it shares the
same design, materials and exquisite craftsmanship of its
larger counterpart. It’s perfectly balanced, big and strong
enough to stand on its own or fight alongside its bigger brother.
