Kagi-nawa was a grappling hook used by Ninja. [1] It was used as a weapon, or as a grappling hook for ascending sheer walls, [2] barbed along almost the entire inside of the hook curve. [3]

Origins Edit

The Shosuro were the first to employ the kagi-nawa as a weapon, creating many techniques that employed the hooks to trip, disarm, and otherwise disable an opponent. Especially skilled ninja were able to swing the hook like a Manrikikusari and used the round outside of the hook curve to knock opponents unconscious. [3]
