1 antique Samurai kusarigama (hook and chain) weapon available. This Samurai weapon was made sometime in the 17th or 18th centuries. This hard-to-find Japanese antique would make an important addition to any collection.
Use of the kusarigama is called kusarigamajutsu. Attacking with the weapon usually entailed swinging the weighted chain in a large circle over one's head, and then whipping it forward to entangle an opponent's spear, sword, or other weapon, or immobilizing his arms or legs. This allows the kusarigama user to rush forward and strike with the hook.
A kusarigama wielder might also strike with the spinning weighted end of the chain directly while still outside the range of an opponent's hand weapon.
There are great videos of martial artists practicing kusarigamajutsu on youtube.
This kusarigama measures 15 1/4 inches in length. The chain (including the weight) measures 63 inches.
This kusarigama was signed by the maker.
