Hudiedao Rare Wing Chun Wingchun sized examples Complete with sheath Chinese swords knife knives dagger China fighting sword dao antique www.swordsantiqueweapons.com


A very rare type of Chinese fighting knives.

In their sheath, this pair measure 44cms long. Out, they are 42cms long, and carry a blade which is 31cms long.
Whilst antique Wing Chun sized Hudiedao are extremely rare, this sub type are of a type that is much rarer than their counterparts with the knuckle guard and hooked quillon.

Apart from the guard less nature of these knives that make them extremely rare, it is the blade geometry that makes these knives work exceptionally well in hand.
The narrow base and widening mid-section provide a very strong and capable forward working motion, capable of delivering a more devastating blow than those of typical form, yet despite the desire to work forward in the hand, the geometry offers remarkable balance, speed and variation of attack and defence angles than the more rigid nature of commonly known types.
Reversing the grip of these knives also offers the same capabilities in hand, but in a less lethal mace like manner.

The hilts are a carved hardwood with brass collars and robust faceted brass guards and pommels. Age cracks are present, as seen in the images presented, however, the grips are solid and without movement.

Of equal historical value is the presence of the original leather sheath with lucky coin motifs. It is somewhat dry from age and is complete.

A very rare and extremely capable fighting knives from China, that double as both sword and mace.
