This is an incredible, extremely rare weapon from the Chu Culture and dates to the Warring States period (circa 400 BC). It is called a Pi and was used as both a spear and a sword (or dagger). This is one of the rarest weapon types from ancient China and you will not likely see another one like it anywhere at any price. Ancient Asian bronze is becoming rarer by the day. This piece is a guaranteed investment. It measures roughly 46 cm in length and weighs 425 grams. There is some minor damage to one edge that you should be able to see in the pics. There are parts of this piece that have been scratched as a result of someone attempting a crude cleaning. THis is not at all uncommon as often the individuals that find items like this are simple farmers and they attempt to clean the pieces when they find them using whatever tools are available. There are no signs of repair to this piece. As with all our items, the authenticity is guaranteed. This one will not last long. Don't miss this rare opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind, investment quality ancient weapon. Feel free to email with any question or to request additional pics.
