Samurai Sword Maintenance...
The Niuwei Dao, or the "oxtail saber." A heavy bladed weapon with a characteristic flaring tip, this is the archetypal Chinese broadsword.
The hilt gives good grip and this DAO has some nice features.
The blade is made of through hardened HCS 1060 and has a length groove.
The scabbard is very well decoreated with brass and is feasible to fasten it to a belt.
Niuwei Dao specifications:
Overall length: 88 cm
Blade length: 68 cm
Handle length: 19,5 cm
Weight: 880 gram
Piece from piece can slightly vary.
