Korean Do

Price: 921 HKD / 128.94 USD (with flexible tip)

Sold: 77

 

The two-handed sabre or 'Do' is a study in utility. It is well-suited to both cavalry and infantry, and to both one and two-handed use. It is capable of very powerful cuts and long slashes, while still retaining good accuracy for thrusts.  This style of weapon is a true workhorse. Appearing across Asia in various incarnations, this weapon has become iconic. Slender and strong, sharp-edged and wickedly pointed, the Do is an all-purpose killer - efficient and potent.

 

The curvature facilitates drawing and aids slashing in cavalry actions. The blade design provides a solid response when cutting, yet also allows a small amount of flex to aid defensive techniques.

 

The Do is used in several Korean sword arts, such as Haidong Gumdo, Gicheon, and Sim Mudo.

 

The Realistic Sparring Weapons Do is based on an actual sword. Unlike either a juk-do (the bamboo sword used in kumdo sparring) or a moggum (a wooden sword), the RSW Do has the full weight and balance of the real sword. This realism allows for the full speed, full force execution of historical techniques that have traditionally been passed down as paired forms in which blows are pulled.
