This has to be one of the best, if not THE best Dao currently on the market.
The blade is forged from folded 1095 carbon steel and then differentially hardened, resulting in a harder edge and softer spine to combine yin and yang to create a sword that is both hard yet also flexible enough not to break or shatter when contacting a demanding target. It is then mounted in ornate fittings over a black ebony wood base.
The brass fittings, cast and then hand finished depict writhen Dragons - the entire assembly studded with 83 semi-precious stones of Red and Green Jade, all colors combining to form a visually stunning masterpiece. But this is not just a show pony..
Indeed, weighing in at 3.3lbs with a somewhat tip heavy blade, it is best wielded with two hands, the 11" handle providing enough room and in many ways is closer to a Katana than single handed Dao - delivering incredibly powerful shearing cuts and fight stopping thrusts.
With a folded 1095 carbon steel blade and attractive cast and hand finished fittings over black ebony wood it is both attractive and eminently functional, balanced 3.93" from the guard and weighing in at just 1.87lbs - making it fast and responsive as any good fighting Dao should be.
Do not be fooled by cheap and nasty imitations, this sword is the real deal. Almost never seen out of China due to the uncertain market demand and high expense of production. However, with Forge Direct, you have a rare opportunity to order one of your own with FREE worldwide shipping right here at the SBG Sword Store!
ABOUT THE FORGE
One of the biggest and most famous forged in China dedicated almost exclusively to producing historical, functional replicas of genuine Chinese Swords - the Baojian (precious sword) Forge joined Forge Direct in late November 2019 with many of the more expensive blades being personally forged by the current owner, level 2 ranked Master Smith Zhangshu Ji.
Established in 1956 with over 50 smiths (including several rank 1 Master Smiths) and 200 workers, this forge was selected in 1972 to produce 4 swords that were gifted to President Nixon during his historic visit to China and is renowned throughout the country as one of the best quality suppliers of premium quality traditional Chinese swords and ancient weaponry.
