We are pleased to offer three traditional style Chinese Martial Arts Swords.
To the left is the Chinese broadsword, or Dao, (11-GT). This is undoubtedly the finest weapon-grade sword of its type commercially available and is 31' in length, with a blade of 25". The distal-tapering blade and traditional hand tied grip make for superb handling. A wooden, brass-mounted scabbard is included.
To the right is the Dadao, or fighting sword, (12-GT). Allowing single or two-handed use, its weight-forward blade made it the ideal close-quarters weapon of days gone by. This blade is 38" in length with a 24" blade. A simple canvas case is provided for blade protection, (only partially shown).
These swords are made of high-carbon spring steel. Measurements are approximate.
Our T'ai Chi Sword is built around a hand-forged Damascus steel blade, profiled to produce a fast, well-balanced sword for the martial artist, and an authentic piece for the collector of oriental weaponry.
The matching rosewood grip and scabbard with bronze fittings, decorated in a traditional Chinese motif, are meticulously finished in this heirloom quality sword.
The blade on this sword is approximately 28", with an overall length of around 37".
All swords sold on this site are new, first quality swords and not used or returned.
Dao (11-GT) $ 175.00 US Da-dao (12-GT) $ 125.00 US
T'ai Chi Sword (13-GT) $ 358.00 US
