Shinobi-shuko were the climbing claws used by Ninja. [1] They were attached to the hands, requiring a great deal of strength and stamina. [2] They were known as shinobi ashiko [3] when attached to feet.

Non-Ninja UseEdit

The Yoritomo family favored these items as they both assisted in keeping a sailor from falling overboard when worn on the feet, and a full set made scaling other vessels that much easier. The Unicorn wore a variant of the claws on their feet to aid in staying in their saddle as well as traversing rough terrain on foot. Hiruma and Daidoji scouts used them during their missions. [4]

Material Edit

These items were often made with bundles of cord and fabric. The Unicorn and Mantis made their claws with treated leather straps. [4]
