A sword design first influenced by the curved swords of the Mongol invaders and later evolving on its own, the Oxtail Dao is a late period Qing Dynasty civilian fighting sword that is balanced and optimized to cut soft or unarmored targets to - and through - the bone..
Alongside the Dadao, this blade was frequently found amidst the chaos and the carnage of the 19th and 20th centuries and has also starring in many a Kung fu movie as it slashes and cuts its way through multiple opponents like a knife through hot butter. The 30.5" blade weighs approx 2.3lbs and is balanced 9.5" out from the handgaurd to achieve truly frighting cutting velocities.
Unlike most other replicas currently on the market this is no flimsy 'Wushu' blade but instead has the same characteristics as the historical originals it is based on - in a word, it is great value for money.
