65MN Spring Steel Oxtail Dao
IN STOCK & ON SPECIAL
Amazing Value - Fully Functional Hand Forged 65MN Spring Steel Blade. Fast one handed niuweidao.
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.

Well I received this today
we will start with the good
the sword is very sturdy well built and amazingly balanced and very beautiful.
Now to the bad
The sheath is loose it doesn't grip the sword very well and all and it slides
The fittings on the sheath are glued on and mine came with both hanger brackets sliding where the glue didn't hold
Now all in all great sword but the sheath is defiantly lacking
