THE FINAL 3 - Re-release details: 2 still available

Offered for the last time in 2023, we accidentally closed down on accepting the final orders for this sword leaving 3 still available. Once these last 3 are sold, the sword will be retired and no longer available to purchase. More details at this blog post

The second sword in the Project X Chinese series and perhaps the most deadly, the Dragon Dao is a fierce, full power one handed cutting sword made by Master Smith Michael Ye. The original sword this historically accurate, museum quality replica is based upon is a Qing Dynasty (1644-1912) piece,  accumulating some 2,000 years of sword making knowledge and is equally fearsome in both appearance and raw cutting practicality.. An exact historical replica of the original blade housed in the Fujian Museum, no expense has been spared to create one of the finest swords money can buy. 

The 1095 high carbon steel blade blade is personally hand forged, folded and differentially hardened by the master himself that will cut like a one handed Katana (a good Dao, which is a dedicated cutting sword, is one of my personal favorite swords - and this particular piece, the personal favorite of Chris Scoggin, project X partner and owner of Ronin Katana! This is one of the swords we are PROUDEST to offer to the sword collecting community). 

Naturally, such a fine blade demands luxurious fittings - and one look at the Dragon Dao clearly shows that no expense was spared in this area. 

From the hand finished, brass dragon themed handguard, pommel and scabbard fittings to the extensive use of blackened A grade rayskin (full handle AND scabbard wrap) - the Dragon Dao is pure class and in a league of its own.  

Normally RMB20,800 (Approx US$3,400+), the Master has kindly agreed to make it available to the broader (outside of China) sword collecting market at a massively discounted price of just $1,799.99.

Don't miss out, most Project X designs are one offs, this isn't a repeat design you will see time and time again.. 

Luxurious quality with a magnificent cutting blade. Project X Chinese.
