Price: 4160 HKD / 582.4 USD
Chinese Qing Dao were popular in Qing dynasty and this sword was made in the style of officer's swords. The shape might have been influenced by multi-cultures. Among them the most significant were Chinese and Japanese. Some examples shown unique characteristics of Indian, Turkish and Mongolian as well. This style of Dao was applicable to both infantry and cavalry in cut and thrust style. It was easy to draw from the sheath as well, thus became popular among officers and guards. It was different from modern Wushu Dao that it featured a narrower blade than the latter one, weighing 2 lbs or more, balanced at 40% of the overall length. This particular piece of modern made Qing Dao had the same balance point as the antique, hence the handling characteristics were superb, being fast and smooth. We did a test cutting and the result was excellent where the first strike split the plastic bottle with the bottom half staying at the same place without being moved by the impact at all.
