This is a reproduction of Admiral Yi Sun Shin's great, twin, swords. Yi Sun Shin was the greatest admiral in history, victorious in 23 out of 23 naval battles against the fearsome samurais during the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592. Admiral Yi would often look upon his twin swords to gain inspiration and courage before battle. The highlight of his career -- which immortalized his name -- was defeating 133 Japanese ships with only 13 Korean war ships. After this battle, Japanese admirals dared not challenge him, but trembled at the sound of his name. The legendary Japanese Admiral Togo, who defeated the Russian navy in 1905--Russia having one of the greatest navy at the time--said, "It may be proper to compare me with British Admiral Hiratio Nelson [the greatest admiral known to the Western world], but not with Korea's Yi Sun Shin, for he has no equal."

This Admiral Yi Sun Shin sword is approximately half the size of the original. (The twin swords that Admiral Yi had commissioned in 1594 are over 6 feet in length.) Inscribed on this blade are the words that Yi Sun Shin had inscribed on his twin swords: "With this 6-foot sword, I swear to Heaven, as the seas and mountains tremble. I whip -- I sweep. The rivers and hills are dyed red with the blood of my enemies."

( “三尺誓天 山河動色 一揮掃蕩 血染山河“ )


The inscriptions in this sword are engraved by one of Korea's foremost swordsmiths, Master jun gi Moon.

This sword has a blade profile and design similar to that of the original Admiral Yi twin swords, including two fullers (or bohi in Japanese) on each side.

The blade is forged from  carbon SK steel , which combines strong iron with soft iron.

It's a hammering and forge  and then fold it 10 times and heat it up.

One kind is the forging of carbon steel and heat treatment

It's all done manually by a long-time Blacksmith.   

As a result, it is reliable and resists edge-chipping when used in lengthy cutting practice.

 Though the blade is forgiving of bad cuts, the sword is designed to be wielded by even the best of swordsmen, as the blade steel is tough and has an extremely sharp edge.

 The spine of the blade is tapered, thus, lessening the overall weight of this heavy blade.

 An artificial hamon enhances its beauty.

 Final polishing is done by hand.

Notable attention to detail is paid to the fittings, which are hand-cut and hand-welded.

They are elaborately designed, and representative of Korean sword fittings during the time of the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592.

 The fittings grab tightly onto the sword and transition smoothly onto the scabbard and handle.

Two metal rings are fixed to two bracket fittings on the scabbard so that a leather strap or rope can be tied to the sword.

 The strap or rope goes around the swordsman's belt and allows the sword to hang onto the belt--in traditional Korean style.

  This allows the sword to be pivoted backwards when shooting a bow so that the handle of the sword is out of the way of the drawn bow string.

The scabbard (or saya in Japanese) is custom-fit to the blade so that the blade is held snug in the scabbard without rattling.

 The practitioner will find that the sword can be sheathed and unsheathed in a surprisingly smooth manner,

 without any bumping or snagging of the blade against the scabbard.

 The scabbard is carved from wood and given a finish of glossy black lacquer.

  The mouth of the scabbard has buffalo horn that has been precision-cut to fit around the wood.

  The handle is tightly wrapped in premium, cotton wrap and is overlaid with rayskin.

  The tang is signed by the maker of the sword, Master jungi Moon .

If you would like more options for this sword, including folded steel;

differential heat treatment using traditional clay process; laminated blade;

high-grade polish and finish; or a 6-foot reproduction of the original twin swords, please see other selections in this website.
