A very good example of a Chinese Military Dadao from the Republican/Warlord period.

This heavy fighting sword measures just under 78cms in its regulation leather scabbard. Out of of the scabbard it is 76.5cms long with a blade length of 54.5cms long.
The two handed hilt is bound with faded blue string to the grip and a brass pommel, collar and Tsuba like guard.
The blade is a broad heavy type, typical of the Dadao form. There are Characters to the left face of the blade and double fuller to each side under the spine. The tip of this type of Dadao is a known type that differs considerably from typical blade types in that the hatchet tip is serrated, which enables a deep penetrating thrust cut.
The brown leather regulation scabbard is in good condition throughout with only the typical broken buckle straps.

A very good and rare Chinese fighting sword.
