    There's also a market for these for feng shui, which you could call either "home decoration" or perhaps "ceremonial". Either way, for the home rather than a temple or public ceremony. As far as I've seen, Daoist rituals with swords use more sword-like swords, and Buddhist ritual swords are distinctly stylised, so I'd suspect it's intended for feng shui.

    Doesn't look like the usual thing made for sale to tourists.
