Reviewed by owners of this product

"I am happy with the sparring jian. The binding on the grip peeled a bit - it appears to be pulling up from glue." - (4/5)

"The Sparring Jian is beautiful. It has a good weight. The only thing I didn't expect was that the end of the blade seems rolled for protection. I thought it would be a normal blade. Also i thought it came with a scabbard " - (4/5)
