Hello again dear readers,
Today, I present to you the weapon of one of china's greatest warriors. To many this man is a god that epitomizes loyalty and righteousness. He is General Guan Yu, and SR systems is proud to present his weapon, the Guan Dao.
The Guan Dao is made of a large blade at the end of a staff, similar to a Glaive or Japanese Naginata. However, the blade of the Guan Dao is significantly heavier than that of a European Glaive or Naginata. The opposite end of the weapon is composed of a spear tip for stabbing. The weapon is wielded like a combination of the spear and sword.
This particular design pays tribute to the great general with a symbolic lion and dragon facing the moon design.
On a technical note, it works with DCS, CCS and WARPs (soon to be XRPS i believe) combat systems. Like the Shaolin Hook Swords and Tiger-Dragon Katana, it has 4 modes of operation and a power attack. I refer you to the Hook Swords post in July 2009 for more details on the operation modes.
