A nice old heavy Chinese Dao complete with original sheath.
This is a rare short sword from the first half of the 19th century
Overall 44cms long with iron D-guard and fittings with a broad blade with a very thick spine of 12mm.
Traditionally seen used with a rattan shield that I beleive later developed into back to back brass handled dao as seen in the Gallery Items.
This is the older rarer single dao with scabbard.
A professional polish will reveal a nice pattern welded blade.
