China Knife, Scissors and Sword Museum

Add:366 Xiaohe Rd


Stone knives and swords were used in prehistoric times. Bronze daggers date back to the Western Zhou Period (1046-771 BC). The museum exhibits Chinese swords from the Stone Age to modern times, as well as swords from other countries. Moving on to scissors, a video shows how workers forge and polish scissors. They are the workers from Zhang Xiao Quan Scissors Co in Hangzhou. Models reproduce every step of the scissor-making process. It also shows ancient scissors from the Han Dynasty made from a single piece of iron shaped like the number "8." Another section shows all kinds of knives used for harvesting, butchering, cooking, surgery and other uses.
