Very Nice Yan Yue Dao blade

Very Nice Yan Yue Dao blade www.swordsantiqueweapons.com


A very nice pattern welded Yan Yue Dao blade, 19th century.
From the tip of the blade to the tip of the tang this piece measures 78cms long in a straight line.
The long up sweeping cutting edge is 66cms long. The raised lobe for engaging other weapons stands 4cms tall and there are 7 gullies following this to the tip.
The pole has long since been removed and what timber that remained has been shaped to the contours of the tang.
A rare and lethal fighting piece in it's day, it does show a number of small nicks to the cutting edge.
Most probably bought out of China during the Boxer Uprising.
