June 2017......Half way through the year, and another new design added to production. The two handed Wodao is pictured with fangshi (square style) grip and fittings, and it will also soon be avavailable in the rounder, transitional style grip and fittings. Wodao were mentioned in the Huangchao Liqi Tushi, and were used by the Green Standard Army. This wooden version has a lainated blade, and internal metal balance weights. It has a very lively and positive handling, the handling characteristics being similar to the Crossbowmans Dandao.
