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.
