Jade Lion Gim
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.
The Cold Steel Jade Lion Gim has proven to be incredibly popular with Chinese Martial Artists and blade collectors alike. Hand-forged and expertly tempered from high-quality Damascus steel, its subtly patterned blades is as sharp as it is beautiful. The heavy guard and pommel are cast from nickel-silver and adorned with watchful Chinese lions, providing exquisite contrast to the jade green cord- and Samé-wrapped handle and Samé-wrapped rosewood scabbard.
The Lion Gim is a civilian self-defense Wen Jian (Scholar's Sword), with a little more panache than the practical versions (like Cold Steel's Gim Sword) that were made for the battlefield. In Cold Steel's tests, it severed and pierced 10 cm bamboo poles with a single cut or thrust.
