Jian is a straight, double-edged sword, used in various variations in China from the Western Zhou era (1046-770 BC) to the second half of the twentieth century.

For a long time used as the main type of weaponry, jian in the Tang era (VII-X centuries AD) becomes an indispensable attribute of a learned man who is equally good at wielding a brush and a blade. Since that time, the sword is also a work of art; a symbol of nobility, valor, and, despite the fact that he was ousted from the military field by another sword (Tao), officials and aristocrats fought with Jiang.
