The Ox-Tail Dao is undoubtedly one of the best weapon-grade swords of its type commercially available. Unlike the many decorative and theatrical versions of this sword, the Hanwei sword is a true replica of the originals. With its traditional ox-tail design, distal-tapered blade and hand-tied grip, the dao handles very well. A brass-mounted wooden scabbard is included.


Overall Length: 81.3cm
Blade Length: 63.5cm
Handle Length: 17.8cm
Weight (without Scabbard): 800 gram

    Great service from Southern Swords
    Review by Krish
    Really great competitive prices and a great range of products! Sword came packaged well . No scratches on the scabbard.

    Only VERY slight tarnishing on the brass and negligable work marks on the blade (reason for 4 stars) but I plan to use this sword a lot for both cutting and practice so Im not that bothered.

    Sword came fairly sharp out of the box (onlt top third of the blade sharp enough to cut paper), will sharpen myself.

    Balance is brilliant for a fairly heavy sword! Someone really thought about the design, the wrap on the handle is tight and attractive also comfortable.

    Blade rusts VERY quickly. Only a day when I wiped some grease away it started to tarnish. Keep well oiled.
