Welcome. Both items are very nice indeed but I much prefer the dadao. If its something more ornamental you fancy then the broadsword is best.

i own the dadao, and apart from some seriously home-ribbon stuck to the hilt (which i promptly removed) the blade is very nice and the wrapping on the hilt is very clever.

A nice quality item for the money (quite sharp tho)

You say your new, if so, just a quick pointer, if you do go for the dadao, note it is a carbon steel blade, and will require a thin layer of oil on the blade to prevent rust, i usually re-do mine 8-10 months, been fine for years.... for more info just see the rest of this forum. :D

Good luck :)

Regards

Mello
