Premium Quality, Master Smith Forged Soshu Kitae Blade.
The second sword by Master Xiaolong and perhaps the most deadly, the Dragon Dao is a fierce, full power one handed cutting sword. The original sword this historically accurate, musuem 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.
Now available at a special pre-order price and guaranteed "cherry pick" of the best of the batch with expected delivery in early October 2014.

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 pre-order price of just $1,799.99 with no duties, customs fees or paperwork required (US sales only, Non-US orders are welcome but as these swords will be shipped from Texas, cross border duties and tariffs may still apply).
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.
