IN STOCK & ON SPECIAL
Amazing Value - Fully Functional Hand Forged 65MN Spring Steel Blade - Massive Sword nearly 5' long..
the Miao Dao is a specialized, massive two handed Chinese Saber with a total length of close to 5' and the blade alone longer than most swords from tip to pommel..
The name Miao Dao was named such in the early 20th century after it was again used in the boxer rebellion alongside the Dadao but was first believed to have been used extensively in the 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".
Designed to break enemy lines, cut rigging, pirates, horses, you name it - it was and still is truly intimidating and fearsome weapon - combining length and momentum as it wooshes through the air with considerable speed - for despite its massive size it weights only a few ounces more than a regular sword..
Truly amazing value for so much well made 65MN Spring Steel steel tempered to a spring finish - though due to its length it can only be shipped within the USA and to Canada.
