History of the Niu Wei Dao broadsword

Niu Wei Dao 牛尾刀 or "oxtail saber"  originated in civilian circles sometime in the 19th century.   They are characterized by having relatively thin blades that flare out near the tip, where they have a rounder cutting section than other Chinese saber types. The blade has a beautiful sweeping upward curve with a handle that curve downwards. This design is optimized for cutting soft targets, reflected the disappearance of armor on Chinese battlefield when firearms became more widespread.  Niu Wei Dao is versatile, impressive looking and gain widespread use among local militia, security police, body guards and martial artists.  This late Qing Dynasty design have made it known as the archetypical Chinese saber.

This Niu Wei Dao is an exacting replica of a well preserved Qing Dynasty Niu Wei Dao.
