Chinese Dadao

£106.40

Be the first to review this product

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.
