The Shū (殳) is another ancient polearm used in Chinese martial arts.

The Shu is a spear-like weapon, usually made of bamboo, with one or two spiked tubes made of bronze that were attached near both ends of the shaft. The end of the bamboo pole was sharpened into a point, and some later versions included a spearhead as part of the spiky bronze tube.

The Shu was used during the Warring States Periods and Qin and Han Dynasties.
Some Shu spearheads were found in Qin Shi Huangdi's tomb, also known as the tomb of the Terra Cotta Warriors.
