The chain whip, also known as the soft whip, is a weapon used in some Chinese martial arts, particularly traditional Chinese disciplines, in addition to modern and traditional wushu. It consists of several metal rods, which are joined end-to-end by rings to form a flexible chain. Generally, the whip has a handle at one end and a metal dart, used for slashing or piercing an opponent, at the other. A cloth flag is often attached at or near the dart end of the whip and a second flag may cover the whip’s handle. The flag or flags adds visual appeal and produces a rushing sound as the whip swings through the air. The rushing noise also helps the user with identifying the location of the other end, since the weapon moves too fast to be normally noticed by human eyes.

This will not hold together if actually used to hit things, and if sharpened you have an extremely high chance of hurting yourself. Solidly made, and still packs a punch without being sharpened. Makes for a great wall decoration, but kind of hard to use (the chain likes to get ‘knotted up’ when flicked). It has a lot more movement than I thought it would have. I thought it would only have a side to side range but it has a bit of an all over movement to it, but not so much that it’s out of control. My only complaint is the ring on the handle for display was crooked so it makes display slightly awkward.

Fast shipping, reasonable price, thanks BUDK for this unique collectable. For performance the chain whip can be used to perform meteor moves such as one hand or two hand meteor rotors and weaves. At the end of the performance the chain whip segments can be pulled and collected into the hand holding the handle. There is no standard on the length of the chain whip.

Quick shipping, not sharp out of box but I like that fact, get it the way I want it. Chain whip techniques may be combined with jumping kicks and other acrobatics. Double chain whip forms have been developed, as have forms in which a chain whip is coupled 9 section chain whip for sale with a broadsword. In some, the chain whip is thrown in the air and caught, flicked around the neck, or flung around underneath a recumbent performer. Various twisting or flicking motions cause the chain whip to gain momentum as it unwraps.

Very quick delivery and very impressed with the quality.

I think I was wrong about its popularity in civilian martial art use. This lightweight whip chain has three-ring links and three-inch sections, with a cord-wound grip. The handle end is perforated for tassel attachment.
