Pu Dao (Horse Cutter Sword) – Chinese Martial Arts Weapon
This section provides details for the Chinese martial arts weapon known as Pu Dao (or Podao). It is also known as the “Horse Cutter Sword”.
This martial arts weapon looks like a short staff with a sword attached to the head of the weapon. It is similar to the Chinese weapon known as Kwan Dao. However, the head of the Pu Dao is smaller and lighter than the one mounted on a Kwan Dao.
The Pu Dao is derived from an ancient Chinese infantry weapon. The Pu Dao was a versatile weapon that benefited from its length and cutting ability. It could be used as a spear or sword. It was also supposedly used in order to attack the legs of cavalry horses.
