The Miaodao (Corn Leaf Saber) is another design by Sifu Adam Hsu. This graceful sword is very quick at well under 2 lbs. and the grooved high-carbon blade hisses beautifully in the cutting stroke. The grip is bound in rattan to avoid slipping. For students qualified to use a live blade, the sword is well suited to both Miaodao form and martial applications.
Premium quality made by Hanwei (Paul Chen).
Specifications may slightly vary from piece to piece.
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.
