Lot 0146
China, Warring States, ca. 403-221 BCE. The ji (halberd) is closely related to the ge (dagger axe). The first ji was a composite
weapon made from a double mounting of the ge (dagger-axe) with a mao (spear) set above it on a single pole. This
provided a greater versatility in application since a ji armed warrior could thrust with the spear point and hook or puncture with the dagger-axe blade. This ji is plain in appearance, save a beautiful green patina, but no doubt it was efficiently lethal when used. A fine example! Measures approximately 10-1/2" tall x 5-1/2" across

Provenance: Ex- Connell Collection; Published in "Ji {Halberds} & Ge {Dagger-axes} in ancient China" by Ken Blair.
