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 sam (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 the 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.
