When talking about Chinese traditional cold weapons, one of the most common terms we hear is "eighteen kinds of weapons".

Because there is no need to use gunpowder and the manufacturing cost is low, it is very popular in ancient times. Moreover, countries like China, which advocate martial arts culture, are very interested in cold weapons, and even have 18 ranks of martial arts, which can be said to be historical and cultural. However, not only China, many countries have their own traditional cold weapons, which are also preserved as cultural relics. However, some cold weapons are collected in their own hands. Since they are collections, there must be a price. What is the general price of cold weapons?


Since the Han and Sui dynasties, whips and Maces have become weapons of famous experts. Weichi Jingde, a famous general in the early Tang Dynasty, was good at using double whip and Qin Qiong (zishubao) was good at using double mace. Later, these two famous generals became popular door gods with swords


Mace (iron) is a kind of whip, long but without edge, with four edges and four feet in length (four feet in Song Dynasty is one meter two). Many maces are used together with two Maces. It belongs to short weapon, which is good for horse battle. The mace is heavy in weight. People who are not powerful can't use it freely. It can kill people alive even though they are separated by armor. The technique is close to the sword technique. From the Jin and Tang Dynasties, it's made of copper or iron. It looks like a hard whip, but the mace body has no knots and the end has no tip. The section of mace body is square with groove, so it has the name of "concave mace". The size and length of mace vary from person to person (generally between 65-80cm)


The mace is one of the short soldiers. It has four edges in the square and is about four feet long. It's named because it looks like a simple one. The mace has no edge. It is called a bamboo mace if it has a knot at a distance of six or seven inches. It is called a square edge mace if it is completely straight from the handle to the end. The cover is renamed according to its shape. The origin of the mace is the same as the sword. After the Qin and Han Dynasties, it was impossible to find out who created the mace. However, the short soldiers fought against each other, and the later generations had more practice. Nowadays, the north and South boxing masters are good at it. It is also like a single Sabre and a whip, which is convenient to carry and can be protected with you. However, the mace has no single use, and the method is double-edged. Therefore, the later generations have the names of male and female mace, mandarin duck mace, etc. they are also strange and different. They increase or decrease the original 24 methods, and establish a separate door. However, they cannot get rid of the mother method. In addition, those who use long soldiers and hide maces at their waists to prevent accidents; in other words, maces are short soldiers and also used as concealed weapons. Most of them are made by later generations of people who are clever, who set up false weapons to deceive people, and cannot be used for training; those who learn martial arts in the world should follow the ancient law, and not more than all of them are fallacious.


Many collectors are also happy to collect cold weapons. The historical significance of these cold weapons is the main reason to attract them. Many cold weapons in the auction field are

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jun 3, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.
