Enter the world of traditional Chinese swords and weaponry. Explore this ancient art with vivid photography showcasing a plethora of Chinese weapons presented by a master swordsmith. Confucius said,"Literature is as important as martial arts and weaponry", that is to say, for a country or people to sustain and continue its culture and tradition, weaponry is indispensable. Ancient weaponry no longer applies to modern wars; however, the craftsmanship and the artistic level of unearthed ancient weaponry are comparable or even surpass equivalent pieces made by modern technology, from a collector's viewpoint. Ancient weaponry also adds fanciful mysteries to the beautiful legends of ancient swordsmen. Sword casting is the perfect combination of culture, tradition, science, art, mythology, and legends. Throughout history there have been many great legends about swordsmiths. The process of casting swords can startle the universe and move the gods. The features of a treasured sword have sometimes been deified. Treasured swords are invaluable collectible items for art collectors, martial arts practitioners, and those who pursue spiritual life.
