Bisento

A bisento is a Japanese polearm characterized by a long, heavy, curved blade mounted on a staff, resembling the Chinese Guandao.

Description

The Japanese-style glaive known as the bisento is composed of a curved blade, akin to that of a scimitar, attached to a long shaft.[1] Though it resembles the Guandao, it differs from its Chinese counterpart by its longer blade which was not quite as broad, yet still quite heavy.[1][2]

The bisento obtained by the Assassin Arno Dorian of the Parisian Brotherhood was of particularly ornate design, boasting a highly-stylized golden guard for the blade, complete with a protruding rear spike.[1]

History

During the French Revolution, the French Assassin Arno Dorian acquired a bisento.[1]

Trivia

  • The Japanese name bisentō (眉尖刀) literally translates to "brow sharp blade".
  • The bisento features as a weapon in Assassin's Creed: Unity, where it can be unlocked by collecting all artifacts in the Les Invalides district.
  • The appearance of the bisento from Unity seems to be based off of the early 17th century fauchard of Cardinal Scipione Borghese's bodyguard, now displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.[3] This calls into question whether the so-called bisento acquired by Arno Dorian in Unity is actually a bisento rather than a fauchard, the very fauchard of Scipione Borghese's bodyguard.
