This story, from the classic novel Outlaws of the Marsh, is about a hero named Yang Zhi. Not only was he gallant and an exceptional fighter, but Yang also had a precious sword—the fastest, sharpest blade south of the Great Wall.
One day, he is appointed by an official to protect an important delivery of goods to the emperor. While crossing the desert, though, Yang and his men are ambushed by bandits. The bandits pretend to sell them wine, but instead drug them and run off with the cargo.
Forsaken and helpless, Yang has no choice but to sell his beloved sabre... Until, that is, another encounter with the bandits helps him set things right.
