Your Dao Sword was handed to you by your master, many years ago. It had been a bittersweet moment for you, because while it meant you had overcome all obstacles in your training, it also meant that it was time to set out on your own.

You look beyond the campfire where a fresh fish now cooks, sizzling in the heat, looking to the flickering shadows along the treeline. You have the sense that tonight you and your sword may once again be tested as you hear the unmistakable snap of a twig, your grip on the sword tightening in anticipation.

DETAILS

This bestselling Ready For Battle Sword Dao is inspired by the ‘General of Weapons’ – a curved sword traditional in eastern cultures. It features a balanced single-edged blade, popular with cavalry and effective at chopping and slashing. The blade is slightly curved with a fake-edge meant to improve its piercing effectiveness, and attaches to the split-leather wrapped handle with an oval-shaped cross-guard. The pommel is rounded, matching the blade’s overall design.

While Asian-inspired, the RFB Dao is low-fantasy enough to be used in almost any setting. Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.

HISTORY

  • Primarily used by the Chinese for slashing and chopping
  • Considered one of the four traditional Chinese weapons

string(407) "The Strategist's Dao is a one-handed sword inspired by Chinese martial arts. It features a curved blade, a brass guard, and a leather-wrapped handle. This sword is ideal for LARPers who want to add some oriental flair to their character. The sword is made of durable foam, with a fiberglass core for stability. The Strategist's Dao is a versatile weapon that can be used for slashing, stabbing, or parrying." ["description_long"]=> string(3403) "

The Jade Protectorate's army was outmatched in number, as well as equipment and troop quality. They had nomad mercenary riders, light infantry militias, and only a handful of professional soldiers at their disposal. By all accounts, they stood no fighting chance in the field, and the Purple Legion they were facing grew confident and bold, trusting in their heavily armored footmen to win the day. Placing the rowdy and lightly geared levy troops in the middle of the formation had created an obvious weak spot in the Protectorate's lines, a crack in the armor that could be exploited to break their ranks and ensure a quick victory to the overwhelming forces of the Purple Legion. It was no surprise that this is where they concentrated their attack. In fact, it was exactly what the Jade's Strategist had been hoping for.

As the Legion's iron clad soldiers clashed against the Jade's lines, the centre slowly gave ground, backing off as they were pushed by the much stronger soldiers facing them. What the Purple Legion didn't know was that the quick-footed militias holding the middle had been instructed to do so, to exaggerate their weakness so the Legion would commit their force there. To embolden the Legion even more with a false sense of invincibility, the nomad riders retreated from the battlefield as if they were fleeing, only to make a wide turn and slowly maneuver around the enemy for a rear charge. Before long, the Purple Legion was pushing so deep in the centerline that they were essentially getting themselves flanked, and suddenly, the seemingly broken militia they had been pushing back stood firmly and fought tooth and nail, closing the U shaped trap, with most of the enemies now caught between jaws of spears and swords. Realizing too late they had been lured into a terrible engagement, the Purple Legion's officers tried to back away and reform their lines, but this is when the nomad riders returned and charged them forces in the rear, closing the trap and creating a perfect encirclement despite the Protectorate's numerical disadvantage.

The battle was won in that instant, and the Strategist's masterful tactics had won him a place in military history. He had personally been fighting in the center with his honour guard, hiding among the levy troops and keeping their morale high for their crucial role in this battle. Accounts say that his long curved dao sword took the life of the Purple commander in single combat, personally sealing the fate of the one so blinded by pride he fell for this well-crafted ruse.

This fantasy sabre inspired by Chinese dao swords is a nimble blade made for LARP combat. With a subtle curve and an inclined handle, it is a comfortable and fast moving weapon in the hand, and it can suit many oriental or Asia inspired characters, as well as elves, dragon warriors, or imperial guards.

As with all of Athena products, this model includes:

  • A soft and robust reinforced point designed for the estoc;
  • A solid structure ready to parry
  • A counterweight in the handle for unparalleled maneuverability;
  • A 2 year warranty 
  • LATEX-FREE and waterproof varnish
  • Safe foam fake weapon designed for LARP combat, cosplay, theater and film.

The Athena line, from Nemesis Workshops, is a mass produced line of high quality LARP weapons.

Athena is a new thermoforming manufacturing process that we have developed in order to offer high quality products at the cutting edge of technology. 

Thanks to this new process, Nemesis has taken the quality of their products to a higher level. Safer due to reinforced tips, durable due to quality materials and foam fusion during thermoforming, incredible balance due to the weighting system in the handles, flawless blades due to high precision molds, and daggers ready to parry due to a more robust fiberglass rod.

Product information "RFB Dao Sword - Classic"

Your Dao Sword was handed to you by your master, many years ago. It had been a bittersweet moment for you, because while it meant you had overcome all obstacles in your training, it also meant that it was time to set out on your own.

You look beyond the campfire where a fresh fish now cooks, sizzling in the heat, looking to the flickering shadows along the treeline. You have the sense that tonight you and your sword may once again be tested as you hear the unmistakable snap of a twig, your grip on the sword tightening in anticipation.

DETAILS

This bestselling Ready For Battle Sword Dao is inspired by the ‘General of Weapons’ – a curved sword traditional in eastern cultures. It features a balanced single-edged blade, popular with cavalry and effective at chopping and slashing. The blade is slightly curved with a fake-edge meant to improve its piercing effectiveness, and attaches to the split-leather wrapped handle with an oval-shaped cross-guard. The pommel is rounded, matching the blade’s overall design.

While Asian-inspired, the RFB Dao is low-fantasy enough to be used in almost any setting. Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
