    I’m not good with Chinese history and eras, what is characteristic of Tang Dynasty, in terms of sword design? When was Tang Dynasty? Why are you interested in that era in particular, for swords?

    Maybe there are some Tang era designs here?

    I’ve not used any of their swords so I cannot speak to the quality, but the website has some evaluation videos on it, reviews seem favorable. Prices are not outrageous, in the $350-450 range, generally.
