Deluxe Qing Dynasty Chinese Sword Baoteng Dao Museum Replica Saber Folded Steel
Out of Stock
The Baoteng sword originates from the Qing dynasty, under Emperor Qianlong. To celebrate the prosperity of this dynasty, he commissioned the Imperial Household to craft 90 swords in honor of this celebration. The Emperor personally hand picked the materials to be used, and oversaw the design of the swords themselves, each one being slightly different from the others and therefore unique. The swords were produced from 1748 to 1793 and took 45 years to make all 90 swords.
This particular model is based off of the Baoteng Sword number 17. The original sword sold for $5.9 million dollars, but you can own a high quality reproduction of this sword for a fraction of that cost.
This sword comes in a high quality display box, and includes a sword cleaning kit.
