In USA, many of the "Tongs" (Chinese gangs) were known to use axes and "tommy-guns", would Hu-die-dao have been amongst their weapons?
There have been some good articles found in Harpers Weekly in the early 1900s that document this and other weapons of choice.
You will find some of these dao above and others within my gallery collection.
I still have several pairs to add and I may get to it this weekend if time is available, it has been a rough couple of weeks without a home PC.
Dimensions that Fearn asked for are within the text.
