The ancient Forged Warrior Chinese Nine Ring Broadsword was a masterpiece weapon designed for battle with the addition of rings in the spine. The rings were used to help blunt an opponent’s blade when blocking a strike and when slashing, the rings provide forward momentum as they swing forward. This sword has a 25 1/2”, two-toned stainless steel, dadao style blade, which has a unique battle-scorched treatment, and the nine metal rings threaded loosely into the spine. The two-handed handle is wrapped in wax-cord and it has a distinctive guard and an open-ring pommel that comes to a point. The Chinese broadsword is 42 1/2” in overall length and can be carried in its scabbard with an adjustable shoulder strap.
