Song Hand Dao

The LK Chen Forge:

This Broadsword was forged by LK Chen, a forge that specializes in the recreation of ancient Chinese weapons featuring authentic dimensions, weight, balance and handling.

LK Chen weapons are all designed for cutting purpose. You can train cutting with rice straw mats or bamboo targets.

History of the Song Hand Dao:

In the Song Dynasty military manual, "The Essential Summary of Military Affairs", there are illustrations of standard military weapons, including 8 Dao (single-edged swords), 7 polearms
and a final one handed Dao with a broad blade bearing the name "Hand Dao".

The Song Hand Dao:

This sword is an identical replica of a rare, well-preserved Song Hand Dao.
It has a longer handle so that the Dao can be wielded with two hands if necessary.

The Song Hand Dao is powerful, thick, sturdy and is one of the earliest Chinese wide-bladed sabers.
It has a ring at the end of the pommel, following a long tradition started a thousand years ago with the Han Dao. It's blade is made of clay tempered steel reinforced with T10 tungsten-vanadium. This is a good compromise between rigidity and flexibility. The blade does not break easily but still has sufficient hardness for cutting.

The fitting, finishing and final assembly of the sword is meticulously done by the experienced master craftsmen of LK Chen Forge. It takes a professional craftsman a whole day to assemble a broadsword of this type with precision.
