Thread: Curved Ge from the Western Han Dynasty

    Curved Ge from the Western Han Dynasty

    The ge is an interesting weapon and even more so (to me) when there are variations of it. This example, claimed to be from the Western Han Dynasty, has what seems to be a longer blade, and it has a curve to it. From a historical standpoint, these variations are very interesting to note; from a practical standpoint, I would like to practice with a weapon like this to understand how effective they would be.

    Interesting. I've not seen one that long or with that kind of curvature before. I have 2 Ges, one from the Warring States and another from the Zhou dynasty.
