Dao
The Dao is a traditional Chinese saber, also often called "broadswords" due to their wide blades, serving up perfectly severed body parts. It was the Close-Range weapon of the Ming Warrior, and is one of the Shaolin Monk's close range weapons in Deadliest Warrior: The Game. It is also used by Sun Tzu in Deadliest Warrior: Legends

DescriptionEdit

"Dao" is a generic word for any single-edged blade, though it most commonly refers to a wide, slightly curved sword with a single cutting edge. The handle is wood wrapped in cloth to absorb sweat, with a circular or semicircular metal guard.

UsesEdit

The Jian and the Dao are the two most famous swords of ancient China. The dao have existed for centuries of Chinese history, although single-handed versions evolved during the Ming Dynasty. During World War II, shortages of firearms forced some Chinese soldiers to fight with the dao. This wasn't so unusual as Japanese Imperialist troops also used Katanas during the war. It is still practiced in modern wushu, where it is known as the "General of All Weapons". The dao can also be used as a thrusting weapon as well as a hacking weapon.

Test in ShowEdit

The dao delivered five kill strikes against two pig carcasses in seven seconds. It perforated a pig carcass and it was theorized that it would hit the aorta and/or several vital organs that if the same thrust was to be performed on a person. The dao also cut two pig carcasses in half with two strikes each. The dao's thrusting speed was measured at roughly 4.9 mph.
