The Miao Dao, the "grain leaf" sabre, receives its name from the early 20th century despite its ancient origin. Its history is a subject of debate among some scholars and sword enthusiasts but all agree about its reemergence in the mid-16th century by General Qi Jiguang who resurrected the sword to combat pirates raiding coastal cities. After the victory over the pirates the Miao Dao remained useful battling enemies of the Ming Empire which led to this famous general's men to be known as the "invincible Qi army". Highly coveted by the soldiers the swords didn't pass along this weapon easily.

This beautiful Hanwei Maio Dao is the pinnacle of Chinese sword craftsmanship. This version features a 31 1/2" L6 steel blade with a groove on on both sides of the blade to lighten the balance. The ribbed handle is a beautiful black which is echoed by the deep black lacquered scabbard. The gorgeously ornate guard and pommel are stainless steel as well as all the other accoutrements. An elegant weapon from a more honorable and duty bound age. 

ABOUT L6 STEEL

L6 Bainite is a band saw steel that when properly heat treated has a reputation as the TOUGHEST type of sword steel currently on the market - mostly due to the innovative custom sword work of Howard Clark, a smith for the Bugei Trading company who started producing this steel in the late 1990s.

As it is difficult and expensive to work with, almost every genuine L6 sword made to date has cost well over $1000 (typically $2000+) - so to find a sword made from this steel by a well respected company for well under $1000 is a game changer, making this elite steel available to almost anyone.
