The two first stems have one thing in common, that is, the end has then the structure of the first of. Rectangular hole of the Hubei Bo bronze sword and should Bo bronze sword, copper, should be missing about. In the past that should be the Suge prime the first ordinary bronze sword was a whole cast made, authors, and even published a paper described the overall process of casting bronze swords. The experts believe that these bronze can be used for cross-reference. The process is relatively simple to explain the casting of bronze sword, but cast only blank As Xunzi cast bronze sword, a description of “power” as: “… However exfoliation, Tobe Li is not broken rope … , made it very clear, just cast out even the rope cut a continuous rough, and we see, but mostly after machining angular bronze sword.
Come to realize that just a small part of bronze sword with a one-time the entire cast, the casting process, the rest are not so simple. Experienced a rather slow and long process to this understanding is often a long time can not explain, but related to another and even a few questions, to produce the chain reaction, and eventually realize that there may be awareness of the process of casting bronze swords deviation , to be conducted in-depth study. To fully understand the true meaning of the inscriptions, it still requires further careful study on the bronze. In recent years, through the systematic study of the characteristics of each part of a large number of unearthed bronze sword, from the conventional casting knowledge seems to be more easily explained, but the range of cast logical, but there are several issues does not make sense.
Until most of the problems to be reasonably explained before realized a long time, the authors were misled by false appearances of the surface of the considerable number of the Warring States bronze sword. It can be said that we saw the Warring States bronze sword, a considerable number is not a one-time cast, at least two or three or even four cast. A farmer dug up a huge bronze tripod. Of course, this is the place of any kinds of art-all theory into that. As long illusion confused, resulting in the Warring States bronze sword to take a lot of detours. The following description of the six unexplained phenomenon. First, why the color of the bronze blade on the body of bronze sword and bronze hilt. Warring States bronze swords surface in many excavated and possession of the community.
You can see the two colors (excluding composite bronze sword, full black bronze sword and green bronze sword) from the Ministry of light color the grid to the first color depth black, which is the majority of the phenomenon of bronze swords. If the majority of bronze swords from the the grid Ministry to the first sub-cast using different tin content, resulting in different surface color is fair and reasonable. But no one, including the author, including the majority of the Warring States bronze sword from the grid to the first sub-casting. This bronze is 100.8 cm high, 7.8 cm of the diameter of the mouth and weighs 153.5 kilograms. Since the entire cast for the same alloy, the same alloy under the premise of the cell to the first color, and from the Ministry should not have such a big difference. Second, the stem decoration hoop is how the system molded Fan.
Yue Ji north of ancient bronze sword stems, two decorated hoop, the stems of many bronze swords decoration hoop. In the stems of these bronze sword, often along the grid on both sides of the range marks the hoop until the first two decorations. The message of the bronze quickly spread to the county. Modern lost wax technology cast this ornamentation hoop is not problem, but the entire cast of exemplary relationship in terms of ornamentation ornamentation hoop week thin and convex, the remaining parts of the recessed, turn the Fan easy demolding difficult to turn good range is difficult to emerge from the die smoothly. Third, the grid Ministry from the Ministry of joint clearance angle is how to produce. Surface processing Bronze Sword, the grid Ministry chinese bronze blade joint angles more acute, modern machinery will clear angle of the corner of this nature called.
