    Weapon Handle Material


    The kama has a fascinating history dating back at least as far as the 12th century in Okinawa, Japan. Like many other Japanese weapons from this time period, the kama was once a mere farming tool, repurposed for fighting, used by farmers to get around the weapons ban placed on them by the feudal government. Its sickle-like appearance is no coincidence – it was originally used for cutting wheat!
    Today, dual kamas are most often seen in karate, especially sport karate. Training kamas are rarely sharpened; however, they retain the holes in the blades that original kama had to make them light and fast for wielding.
