I hope I never see one of those!
Hi Mary Ann,We have a shop in one of the nearby towns, which sells swords and machetes. They specialise quite heavily in armoury of Chinese origin and this "Falchion" looks remarkably like the Chinese equivalent "Dadao". Although I am not so sure that this guy sells the genuine article, because if you Google images of "Dadao", some of the pictures are pretty scary!A great piece of informative and historical wordism today :)Yvonne
Thanks! for sharing that.
