Longquan Double Edged Sword, Lishui
The double-edged sword was named Longquna by ancient people, which is obvious that the craft of casting sword was perfect in Longquan. It has a legend that Ou Zhizi, the master of casting sword, cast five swords for the King of Yue Dynasty, such as Yuchang Sword, Juque Sword, Zhanglu Sword and so on, and then cast three swords for the King of Chu Dynasty including Longquan, Taia, Gongbu. The Longquan Sword was so sharp that it can chop the iron very easily and the hair was broken when it was blown to the sword. Besides, it not only can be extended and bent but also be wielded and used to stick. The modern Longquan Sword can cleave six copperplates one time and be twined as strip. Although it is bent to 180 degree, it keeps strait once you leave go of.
