Drawing of a Dian Guang Jian, from 'Shen Qi Pu (《神器譜》)'.
Dian Guang Jian (電光劒, lit. 'Lightning sword') is a fire lance designed by Zhao Shi Zhen (趙士楨). It is a broad, double-edged chopping blade mounted on a shaft (in essence a swordstaff), with two barrels — one handgonne and one Pen Tong (噴筒)  mounted on both flats of the blade. It also has a disc-shaped guard.
