A True Dragon Sword!

I came across this unique little sword not too long ago, and was taken in by it’s intricate Chinese dragon themed design.

The most interesting thing to me about this sword was how the Chinese dragon theme has been integrated heavily into all aspects of the sword.

The handle is, literally, a curled Chinese dragon, attached to a 16 1/2″ blade that is uniquely shaped to look (to me anyway) almost like a the end of a dragons tail. It seems almost alive, like it would start crawling around in your hand.

A very cool, beautiful and unique piece.

    You know, I think you are right!! Dunno know how I missed that before! When I originally wrote this post, I was trying to figure out how the blade fit in with the whole dragon scheme, just couldn’t quite nail it, and just ended up going with what it looked like to me at the time… but your observation makes more aesthetic sense…

    Thanks!!

    A very nice ceremonial dagger indeed. One piece that proves why I like blades, and Dragons 🙂
