Chinese Contemporary Swords – Jian and Dao

Chinese Sword Cutting Coins

Seven Stars is the Sole US Representative for Huanuo Chinese Swords & designer of Chinese Swords for Hanwei. As I travel to teach Chinese Swordsmanship, students regularly asked me about quality, properly balanced swords for Chinese martial arts. After careful consideration and testing, I found that Huanuo Swords are a good deal for the money. To our the line of Huanuo sword we offer, we’ve added Hanwei swords, including the Cutting Jian I designed for them. Seven Stars will continue to add new Chinese swords to our catalog, but we won’t just add everything we come across. Seven Stars is dedicated to only offering the finest, historically accurate Chinese jian and dao available at the best prices. Unlike many dealers, we warehouse every swords we sell here on site.
