One of his ribs penetrated his lung and his spleen was also damaged.
Jonathon Dee, prosecuting, said the dispute between the men arose over drugs.
Chambers,23, of Logan Road, Sheffield, admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent on July 28. He also admitted witness intimidation between July 31 and August 15.
Judge Sean Morris told him: "This was a well-planned and executed attack. These were life threatening injuries. You are lucky that you are not facing a murder charge. Fortunately he was treated quickly and has made a full recovery.
"You then set about a campaign of intimidation, threatening him and telling him what to expect. It was persistent and it was intended to completely undermine the course of justice."
Robert Underwood, defending, said Chambers had no previous convictions for violence and the offences were out of character for him.
