This type of Oxtail Dao is often colloquially called a Kung Fu Sword. Unlike many sold on the internet, this one offered by Hanwei is no mere theatrical weapon or trick sword -it is a battle-ready and sharpened version of the Ox Tail Dao. This sword is both agile and balanced well.

This Dao has a sharpened blade of 1566 high carbon steel. The guard and pommel are brass. The grip is wrapped with blackened imitation rayskin and overlaid with tightly knotted black nylon cord for a grip. The pommel is fitted with a red nylon cloth.

The scabbard is of varnished wood with brass fittings.

’’Dao’’ in China refers to any single edged sword. Over a country as big as China with such a far-reaching history, the varieties and forms of the Dao are bewildering and can vary considerably. This type is commonly called the Chinese Broadsword and is characterized by a wide, thick blade. In China, it is called the Niuweidao (Oxtail Saber). It is a type that never saw military use, though it was a preferred Dao for the peasantry and civilians. It never saw use by the military, who preferred the thinner Dao such as the Liuyedao and Yanmaodao.
