It can also be made from a similarly soft wood, including bamboo in the right climate. It was considered the most effective conventional weapon on the battlefield due to its flexibility and length. The Jang Chang was widely used in the battle to retake Pyong-yang Fortress during the 1592 war between Joseon (Korea) and Japan.

Juk Jang Chang

The Gi Chang is a flag spear, a nine foot long staff with a nine inch long blade at the end. The colored flag, attached at the end of the spear just below the blade, was used to create confusion in battle. Troops surrounded the enemy and waved the flags vigorously during an attack.
