You stare down at your new weapon, taking in its incredible and awe-inspiring beauty. You have traveled so far and overcome great challenges and dangerous monsters to find this rare weapon. This is the legendary Jade Dao.
The Jade Dao responded to you immediately, growing warm and somehow familiar in your hands. It’s as though this sword has been waiting for you all along.
Epic Armoury’s Jade Dao 100 cm is a latex-hybrid weapon inspired by the ‘General of Weapons’ – a curved sword traditional in Chinese culture. 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 beautifully detailed polyurethane handle. This handle is shaped and painted to look like carved jade and gold with a ring shaped steel-coloured pommel, matching the overall intricate design.
While Asian-inspired, the Jade Dao also features a high-fantasy look that can be used in alternative settings. 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.
Available in sizes 100 cm and 85 cm.
- Primarily used by the Chinese for slashing and chopping
- Considered one of the four traditional Chinese weapons

Heavy but well balanced
The balance is nice and I like the feel of the handle. The only thing I would say will not last is the ring on the pommel. It feels like it wants to be torn.
