As always this is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship Charles.

Not sure if there's a story to go with it. But from memory, it's one of the Jian commissioned for the Qianlong Emperor.

Also, I have a question. Do you ever work in Brass? Or only copper?

Xie xie Aidan,

Yes, as i know, it is a qianglong sword.

And I make brass fitting, even steel fittings. but most of them are the copper ones.
