Podao or pudao (simplified Chinese: 朴刀; traditional Chinese: 樸刀; pinyin: pōdāo) is a Chinese edged infantry weapon which is still used primarily for training in various Chinese martial arts. The blade of the weapon is shaped like a Chinese broadsword, but the weapon has a longer handle, usually around one and a half to two meters (about four to six feet) which is circular in cross section. It looks somewhat similar to the guandao.
The pudao is sometimes called a "horse-cutter sword" since it is speculated to have been used to slice the legs out from under a horse during battle (like the zhanmadao). It is somewhat analogous to the Japanese nagamaki, although the nagamaki sword may have been developed independently. The pudao also resembles the Korean hyeopdo.
