"[An] astonishing and enduring study...[Needham brings] depth of emotion and technical finesse to his task."
Jonathan Spence, New York Review of Books

Laurence Picken, Cambridge University

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me by one of the USA's top swordsmiths and polishers, Francis Boyd, because it explains about how older swords were made in China.

Swordmakers who care about antique swords and their construction will like this book.

The original price of this large book is around $200- US and the bargain price was only $16-US something (at the time of my purchase). Though there is a small black mark on the edge of the book, it would not affect reading at all. Considering the huge cut of the price, it is undoubtedly a good buy.
