Kamayari was a spear with hooked prongs on the tip used by ninja. The prongs could catch and rend an opponent after wounding him with the initial strike. [1]

Use Edit

It was equal parts staff, spear, mancatcher, and climbing aid. They were impossible to conceal due to their length, almost exclusively used when groups of ninja must make a strike somewhere and going unseen was considered an impossibility. They were quickly abandoned once the primary objective of a mission was accomplished, so kamayari were made of "throwaway" materials such as wood and cheap, poorly forged metal. [2]
