The Traditional Emei Piercer is made of stainless steel. They are lightweight but strong and sturdy. Each piercer measures 14" long and weighs .25 lbs. This traditional style Emei Piercer has semi-sharp spear shaped pointed tips. These dual-wielded, double-pointed spikes are a little longer than the usual ink pen. Connected to the main shaft is a brass ring meant to encircle the finger so that it may be twirled. This Chinese martial arts weapon is much more subtle and concealable than any sword or bladed weapon; combatants are often unaware of the emei piercers until it is too late. Sold in pairs.
