Tang Dynasty
Iron Ploughshare
铁铧   工具

A plowshare or ploughshare is the cutter of a plow. It is attached to a head or molder that holds it in position to create a furrow. The use of iron in the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907 AD) allowed many different shapes to be used and developed, greatly increasing the efficiency of the plow.
