Dagger of undulating dragons

Time period: Warring States Period (770 – 221 BC)

Material: Bronze Alloy

Length: 25 cm

This is a phenomenal bronze dagger from the Warring States Period of China. Based on the undulating dragon motif, it can be stylistically categorized as having been originated from the Jin State area, most likely the Zhao State, renowned for its strong military reform during history. The dagger is of perfect size for use as a tool, but also for elements of surprise during warfare. In one of the most famous attempts of the assassination of the Qin emperor, Jing Ke the assassin was said to have used a hand scroll to conceal his dagger, most likely one that resembles this work. This assassination was recorded in the ancient text “Strategies of the Warring States” (Zhan Guo Ce). The dagger blade is sharp even after more than two thousand years of history, with beautiful patination and clear marks and dents signifying its usage.

曲龍匕 年代:戰國(公元前770 - 221)

材質:青銅合金

長度: 25 厘米

此青銅短匕來自戰國時期。柄上的竊曲龍紋樣式和柄兩端的立體獸首紋均是此時期來自三晉地區的典型紋樣,風格接近曾以『胡服騎射』改革軍事政策的趙國。 短匕在戰國時期是日常軍事用途的必須工具。同時,它亦可在戰事中作為奇兵——刺殺——的關鍵器具。歷史中,最廣為後世流傳的刺殺任務便是荊軻刺秦皇。根據《戰國策》記載,刺客荊軻將短匕藏於本國的地圖捲軸之中,『圖窮匕現』、刺殺秦皇。而當時刺殺的匕首形制,應與此短匕相近。 此曲龍匕經歷了兩千多年的歷史的洗禮依然鋒利異常,鏽跡斑駁,刃上仍帶有當時的使用痕跡極具收藏價值。
