Testing out a jian I've sharpened for a friend on forearm difficulty target (single PPR pipe cored newspapers roll).

Nice cutting, the Jian is not as much of a dedicated cutter as some form of saber but it seems to be able to do the job fairly easily.

Yes. It's 1.1kg and 5.75" POB, certainly will get the job done if sharpened well.

Nice cutting. I should try a newspaper target someday. Do you have any videos on how you make your targets?
