The Chinese Broadsword has many variations of its blade shape and length. The “Head Chopper” or Dadao is a fighting weapon whose properties closely resemble those of a modern machete, making them far easier to use than other swords. They are often associated with town militia and other self-funded forces. These double handed head choppers are constructed of cold-rolled, chrome plated steel and are available with approximate blade lengths of either 21.5" or 27.5". Blade will support its weight when place on its tip.
Approximate overall length: 32.5" or 40"; Approximate weight: 1.5 lbs. or 2 lbs.; Approximate handle length: 10.5" or 13" (including pommel ring).
