Emei Daggers

Emei daggers (Emei Ci) appeared as a weapon in the martial arts at the end of the Qing Dynasty in the Emei Mountains (hence the name). The weapon is about 30 cm long. A central ring located on the middle of the hand makes it possible to turn the points.
These weapons are often used in pairs. They also allowed to pierce the boats under water.
Emei's daggers (or knives) Due to the shape of a woman's hair, would have been created by women. Moreover, because of her lightness, she was the weapon of women. This weapon was representative of a sect.
The shape represents 64 movements that correspond to the 64 hexagrams of Yi King.
