  • Chinese Pudao

    The Chinese Pudao, originally an infantry weapon, has been adopted into the martial arts and its use in the hands of a skilled practitioner is spectacular. This weapon is also known as a horse-cutter sword since it was used to slice the legs out from under a horse during battle. Our Pudao (SH2072) is a weapon to be coveted by the infantry of old and modern martial artists alike. The high-carbon tempered steel blade has an aggressive distal taper to promote quickness and balance and a long tang for strength, while the oak staff is tightly wrapped in a traditional pattern to optimize handling and adds to the distinctive appearance, as do the dragon-head bronzed steel blade collar and bell tassel. This weapon combines the best attributes of the sword and staff.

  • Chinese Dadao

    Long the traditional weapon of China’s peasant armies, the Dadao, or big sword, was used with deadly effect as late as the 1930’s in the Sino-Japanese War. Its single- or two-handed versatility, combined with the tremendous slashing power of its weight-forward blade made it the ideal close-quarters sword. Although the original sword had no scabbard, Hanwei provides a simple carrying case for protection and ease of transportation.

  • Flexible Kungfu Jian Sword

    For the Kungfu sword practitioners seeking a sword of quality beyond the flea market and el-cheapo wall hangers, Dragon King delivers the goods in the new Kungfu Jian.

At 39” overall length and 1 lb 10 oz weight, the Kungfu Jian flows comfortably in your hand and balances beautifully. This piece comes with a matching caramel coloured composite scabbard with matte stainless steel accents and chape.

  • Taotie Jian Longsword

    Rooted deeply in Chinese culture going back to the Neolithic age and first finding expression during the Shang and Zhou dynasties as a monster mask on bronze ritual vessels, the legend of the taotie still manifests in modern cutlery on eating utensils and plates. The Taotie (gluttonous monster) consumes permissively and according to myth eventually human flesh. Punished by the gods for his overindulgence, as a warning to others the gods took away his body and jaw so all he can do was eat constantly, leaving nothing but a head and gaping mouth.

    Blade Length: 96cm
    Handle Length: 32cm
    Weight: 1077g
    Point of Balance: 15cm
