Military Dadao

This Hanwei sword replicates a Dadao used by the Chinese military during the Japanese invasion of China in the pre-WWII era and celebrates a Chinese victory at the battle of the Great Wall, in which the Dadao and the Katana were actually pitted against each other. The leather handle wrap is representative of the many different wrapping materials originally used by the poorly-equipped army many of the handles were simply wrapped with strips of clothing fabric, knotted in place. A leather scabbard is included for safety, though the originals had none. The sword is ruggedly built to handle heavy-duty cutting.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

How and what materials are your daggers made from?

The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
