  • Dadao (大刀, roughly translates to big blade) were the war sword from China. They were made famous by the 29th Army of the Chinese Nationalist Army fighting against the Japanese invaders during the World War II period.
    • Due to their broad size, the Dadao are heavy and deliver a mean swing. Legend has it that they are so effective that heads could be cut off easily with ease, and the Japanese Imperial Army had to invent a metal collar to prevent themselves from getting beheaded in the battlefield.
