Description

This is a handmade scaled down version of a rope dart to be worn as a necklace and light use. It is approximately 1/2 the size of a full rope dart at 3 1/2" long and 5/16" at the thickest point.

It comes on a 16" chain, connected to the pendant with a single stainless steel ring, and with a clasp and 2" extension (for a total of 18") on the back of the neck. Available as the rope dart version upon request which includes a much longer, single length of 32" chain, which closes in the front for maximum usable length of the chain as a practice rope dart. The rope dart version also includes decorative rings in the front, as pictured.

The point is made of solid 416 grade stainless steel, which I hand carve from a straight, round rod on a metal lathe. This is the largest of my machined pendants. Check my other listings for smaller versions of this design.

Available either highly polished or blackened. The tip comes slightly rounded to avoid injury, but I can make it sharp if requested.

This item is made to order. Please allow up to two weeks production time.

Here is a section for the wikipedia article on rope darts"
The rope dart or rope javelin (simplified Chinese: 绳镖; traditional Chinese: 繩鏢; pinyin: shéng biāo), also known as Jōhyō in Japanese, is one of the flexible weapons in Chinese martial arts. Other weapons in this family include the meteor hammer, flying claws, Fei Tou flying weight]] and chain whip. Although the flexible weapons share similar movements, each weapon has its own specific techniques.
The rope dart is a long rope (usually 3 – 5 metres) with a metal dart attached to one end. This was a weapon from ancient times, which allows the user to throw the dart out at a long range target and use the rope to pull it back. The rope dart can be used for twining, binding, circling, hitting, piercing, tightening, and other techniques.
Rope dart play consists of twining, shooting, and retrieval. Twining and shooting can be done from any joint such as foot, knee, elbow, and neck. The rope is anchored on the left hand and played primarily with the right hand.
Skillful use of the rope dart can easily trick an opponent because the dart can shoot out very suddenly.
Just like the chain whip, excellent hand-eye coordination is a must for the practitioner to use this weapon well. In some Wushu training regimens, the chain whip and Changquan are prerequisites for learning the rope dart.
A variation of this weapon is the meteor hammer, which has a blunt weight on the end of the rope. It was used in a similar fashion to the rope dart, and many of the techniques are the same. The blunt shape of the meteor ball will deal concussive damage rather than piercing.
