This is a favorite, ornately carved and decorated blade. Some fittings on the scabbard may be later while some appear to be older, the entire scabbard may have been repaired or replaced, the handle wrapping is obviously redone. This is a medium weight Dao, not super heavy, not flimsy. Excellent practice weapon and very nice looking. The tang needs to be re-secured to the pommel, blade can pull out currently.
