LK Chen recreates blade geometry based on antique specimens and each period sword has their unique blade profile reflecting the technology and combat requirements of their historic time period.
These weapons can cause serious injury and death.
Safety MUST ALWAYS be the prime consideration of anyone who handles dangerous weapons. Always handle your weapon with full concentration towards safety, and with respect.
Be very careful when first receive your sword.
Due to possible difference in humidity and temperature between Longquan (similar to South Florida) and the final designation, the scabbard might in some case expand and no longer maintain the same tight fit as in Longquan. You can always adjust the scabbard after the wood has time to settle to your local condition.
The cutting edge of the blade should always be facing away from you when drawing or sheathing your weapon.
Make sure all bystanders are a safe distance away from you and the maximum extended reach or your weapon when the blade is unsheathed.
While we craft each sword by hand, we usually have a number of sharp version of our swords near completion or in stock. So for most sword orders, we expeditiously ship your swords in a couple of days.
Blunt version however, will take a week or so. For swords that we recently introduce, the first batch might take a few weeks upon order to ship.
We have negotiated with our carrier a discount for our USA customers which we will process as a refund off the international shipping cost.
SF Express has just announced an increase in US shipping charges, however, we still be able to offer a decent discount for our US customers .
For orders WITHOUT added on, $70 shipping for single hand swords and $110 for long double handed swords.
Our US customer will get a $20 refund off the $90 single hand international shipping charge and $40 refund off the $150 international shipping charge.
For orders WITH add-on items, such as Dragon Sparrow and/or sparring swords, the discount does not applied due to the added weight of the add-on items, but in total an excellent deal for an add-on item to ship at half the shipping cost.
We are working very hard to find ways to lower shipping charges for other countries as well.
Since our website can only support one flat shipping charge, we will keep the same flat rate for your checkout, once the order goes through, we will refund the difference to you.
COVID-19 impact on worldwide shipping
Due to the current pandemic, our default carrier EMS China that use passenger flights for cargo, stop their service for most countries.
To deliver our swords to you, we have to rely on companies like UPS, DHL and SF-Express who have their own cargo fleet. The shipping charges of these carriers are higher. So we have no choice but to adapt to their pricing during this period. Once EMS is available for us again, we will restore our regular shipping charges.

Single hand lighter sword
1.5 - 2 kg $90
