Description

The Chinese Pudao, originally an infantry weapon, has been adopted into the martial arts and its use in the hands of a skilled practitioner is spectacular.?Paul Chen Hanwei’s Pudao is a weapon to be coveted by infantry of old and modern martial artists alike. The high-carbon tempered steel blade has an aggressive distal taper to promote quickness and balance and a long tang for strength, while the oak staff is tightly wrapped in a traditional pattern, which both optimizes handling and adds to the distinctive appearance, as do the dragon-head bronzed steel blade collar and bell tassel.

    feels like it is about to snap from the pole when practicing traditional Kung fu. Is it the spring steel being this flexible or is it about to break? If it is the flexible steel, I would have a peace of mind. I wouldn’t stab anything with this and only did light cutting with milk jugs. I wouldn’t cut anything heavier for fear of the blade snapping off. Weight is light and not the usual 10-12 lbs we train with. I do not recommend this to someone who has no training with these kinds of weapons.
