You have 4×1′ Blank Weapon handles…

There are many uses for these.Be inventive.

Some ideas presented below.

 

KAMA/KUSARIGAMA:

1 or 2 handles as req’d.

extra REQUIRE: pr.blades app.AUD$70/Drill Kit/ring bolts&etc/length light chain app.AUD$10&clips.

  • Tidy up as req’d.
  • Carefully cut slot for blade tang(very carefully:slot width slightly less than tang thickness).
SLOT AND TANG VIEW

DIY KUSARIGAMA-SLOT AND TANG VIEW

  • Mark, Line up and drill placements holes thru slotted handle and (in line with) tang holes.
  • Slot tang in carefully=blade is sharp.
  • Bolts in and tighten firmly-i tend to use some type of “mud”= extreme pressure paste on bolts and self-lock nuts(NO GLUE-in case you need to repair etc).Most blades may have only one placement hole-feel free to add more as/if reqd-i usually use 1or2:sometimes 3 if longer tang: once done,test if ok;add more if still loose etc.
  • If req’d Drill very small lead/pilot hole in end/butt handle&attach ring bolt to handle butt-glue“loctite”generously here.  Let dry(clip makes chain attach/unattach QUICK AND EASY).
  •  Go Train.Simple.Njoy.

SHIRO DIY 3 SECTIONAL STAFF

  • trng knife-cut to size, leave round one end to represent handle-other end chamfered perhaps…choices choices…

 

  • kubotan(pressure point weapon). This requires lil extra work on handle. Use chisel type tool to carefully create grooves/lumps symetrically along Weapon length(Cut to size=quite small weapon=app.12cm).Round or Chamfer ends too.

Kubotan+wood

If you can carve wood…

yawara's and kubotans

YAWARAs + KUBOTANs carved from exotic wood.

 

CARE AND MAINTENANCE:

Training Weapons if built sturdy are long lasting usually. some slight sanding or retouch varnish may get out most knocks.

If there is some cracking/fracturing starting to appear;the following repair method should suffice.

TAPE WRAP.

SHIRO DIY WEAPON & DUCT TAPE WRAP.

  • Sand smooth as best can.
  • DUCT TAPE affected area tightly and thoroughly going well past damaged area.
  • Refer to blog article below on DUCT TAPE for a historical overview & usage. 
  • https://idreamofninjablog.wordpress.com/2016/01/26/latest-post-is-there-anything-duct-tape-cant-fix/
  • Retighten and/or reset bolts(if reqd)-DO FIRST if near affected area-can tape over this area but maybe NOT GLUE as below in case further/future maint.req.
  • This is where we use fish line and glue-run line thru water to moisten/then wind tightly around affected area and well past if can/…then tie off tightly and let dry lil-Soak in glue“loctite”all around taped/line bound area;esp.over tape ends/borders.(BE CAREFUL=WEAR GLOVES)
