從型制觀察,此劍應屬春秋晚期至戰國在內蒙、甘肅等地廣泛使用的短劍類,當時的短劍大多20多厘米長、直刃、有劍格,莖有扁也有管狀,且有圖案紋飾。

這劍劍身仍非常堅硬,雖然滿佈不同層次及顏色蚽鴃A但仍感到劍刃原來的鋒利。劍柄末呈斜形,不應是原來的模樣,可能劍首己折斷。

劍柄圖案由莖伸延至劍格,粗獷流暢。劍莖扁平,然兩側都有細緻圖案紋飾。此劍方便收藏W帶,把握亦頗舒服。

This short jian is probably made in the late Spring and Autumn Period (B.C. 771-475). In this period, most short jians in regions around Inner Mongolia and Gan Su Province were straight, with guards and geometrical patterns. They were often of about 20 cm long and their handle could be round or flat.

This jian is still very hard and rigid although rust tint of various colours is found all over the jian. The blade is still a bit sharp. The end of the handle is not straight. It seems that there should be a pommel but is now missing.

There is symmetrical geometric pattern over the handle and the guard. Lines are found also at the two lateral sides of the handle.

這刀是一把好刀,而且是頗有經歷,看它刀刃上留下的格鬥痕跡,和它在復原後可看到的風采,便知道當時中國的刀劍工藝的水平是很高。刀身經仔細礪磨後,現出非常美麗的鍛紋和刃紋(花紋刃),而且非常鋒利。

刀莖,以及首、格和刀鞘上的銅件、銅飾都是原來的;刀鞘經修復,應是木製,而漆面是最近重做的。

刀身的厚度和重量都很適中,柄頗粗,把握亦頗舒服,揮動自如。

This is a very good dao which demonstrates the level of sword-making technology at the Western border of China around 1200 A.D. Many traces of combat are seen on the blade even after thorough polishing. This speaks for the history of this dao. Beautiful forge patterns and hamons are clearly seen. The blade is also very sharp.

The handle, guard and pommel, as well as the copper fittings on the scabbard, are original. The scabbard is lacquered recently.

The thickness and the weight of the blade are just good for practising. The handle is rather thick and is comfortable for gripping.
