This zhang blade has a concave in the middle due to the material used. Its shape is quite odd: the upper part is flat, without sharpened edge, and the bolster section has six bulged decorations, with some remnants of vermilion left on them. The blade has no handle. it is conjectured that this object might have been transformed from a damaged zhang blade.
