Hanwei Dadao Sword

(Ref: SH1012)

Long the traditional weapon of Chinas peasant armies, the Dadao, or big sword, was used with deadly effect as late as the 1930s 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.
