Originally an infantry weapon, the pudao is still used for training in many Chinese martial arts. Hanwei's Pudao is a weapon that would have been coveted by infantry of old, as it is by modern martial artists. The high-carbon tempered steel blade has an aggressive distal taper to promote speed and balance and a long tang for strength. The oak staff is tightly wrapped in a traditional pattern, which both optimizes handling and adds to its distinctive appearance, as do the dragon-head bronzed steel blade collar and bell tassel.
