SWORDS FOR SALE
Hand Forged and Polished Blades
Proven Cutters in Either
SANMEI or CARBON STEEL
real swords can't cut for toffee. Some are too soft or too
brittle. Some have problems with weak tangs. These swords
from Huanuo Forge and Hanwei Swords, have been well
tested for strength and cutting ability. I use the dao
pictured on this page for regular cutting and I love it.
I've had it for a couple of years and haven't had to
sharpen it yet.
Each of these real swords has it's own page of information
with a resizable picture gallery for close up views of the
details. Click on the links to reach the pages. These are
modern swords reproduced to be as close as possible to the
Qing dynasty originals (1644-1911).

Round Grip Battle
Dao carbon steel blade. Picture copyright: Scott
I have this one and have been using it for a couple of
years. I'm very happy with it. It's a powerful sword and
easily cuts water filled Coke bottles and small branches.
After all this time it has only minor scratches on the blade
and I've never had to repolish it. It's really great value.
The Dao is well balanced and I use it for forms and basic
cuts practise as well as for cutting. If you're looking
for a real sword and want a sabre, this one is worth
considering. It's a modern sword remake of the Willow Leaf
