Qing Dao, pattern welded sanmei, bubinga, brass in Show and Tell Posted September 23 hi y'all I had pneumonia. The blade, not the entire sword, weighs around 800 g. Yes - the flutes are always done in that direction on these. It just is tradition. OK - the blade weighs 800g, the entire sword, all fitted out, weighs 981g. Thanks for looking and commenting.
