A scarce and huge C.1900's Chinese Nationalist Army Dadao Fighting Sword. These massive swords were issued to ordinary soldiers and used from the early 1900's and right through the Japanese occupation and end of WW2. It takes the form of a large and heavy cleaver-type blade with a long, material-bound grip and ring pommel. The sword retains the original silk tassels - this is rarely seen on these swords. The sword comes complete with its original leather scabbard.
Blade and hilt in good condition
Condition of the huge blade is very good with only light staining in a few places. Both sword and hilt are tight and rock solid with no movement. Blade length is 22.5 inches (32.5 inches overall). Please look at the images below to see this sword carried by Chinese Nationalist troops.
