Martialartswords.com has acquired exclusive sales right of Changpogem by Mr. Yong Soo Park. Mr. Park was an invited smith to Masters of Fire: International Contemporary Bladesmith Exhibition held at the Macau Museum of Art in 2005.
Changpogeom, a Korean straight double-edged sword, is a reproduction of a traditional changpo-geom sword that was used by Royal Secret Service during the Chosun dynasty. Changpo is a type of iris and the name of the sword came from the fact that the blade resembles an iris leaf. It is normally disguised as a walking stick and used only in emergency. The blade of the new changpo-geom made by Mr. Park was slightly broadened so that it can be used as a cutting and thrusting weapon.
The changpogeom will be offered as seen in the picture. However, if a customer wishes, the handle can be wrapped with non-slippery leather for better grip.
Commissioning orders only. Delivery time is 16 weeks after the order.
