A kama was a farming implement similar to a sickle or a very small scythe, used for reaping crops, and also used at times as a peasant weapon. It was reputed to be a favorite weapon of the ninja. [1] They were usually made of a short shaft of wood no more than two feet in length with a slightly-curved tapering blade extending from the top of the shaft at a right angle. The blade was generally sharpened on the inside of the curve only. Those who wielded kama in combat often use them in pairs. [2] The Yoritomo family adopted them as their official weapon. Even the Mantis Clan Champion generally carried a matched set of kama. [3]
