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 weapon. Although the originals had no scabbard, a simple carrying case is provided for protection and ease of transportation. Features authentic styling with powerful cutting capability.

C - Verified Buyer

"One of the brass fittings was a little loose and the factory sharpening job left something to be desired, but after a little touching up I ended up with a functional and quite handy sword. Good value for the price."
