In the life of the Achang people, it is indispensable to scatter knives from households. Every man in Achang wears a small bronze knife when he is a child; when he grows up, he will change into a small army knife; when he grows up or becomes a family, he will change into a growth knife; when young men and women are in love, the young man will also give a small army knife to the beloved girl as a token of love.
