A shobo was a small bar of iron no longer than the width of a man's hand. In the center of the bar was a ring that could be slipped over a finger (generally the middle finger) to keep the bar from slipping when held. [1] When worn it caused a person's fist to have more weight which could potentially cause greater damage while punching. This weapon was popular among the more militant sects of the Brotherhood of Shinsei, as well as with ronin, fireman gangs, and bandits. [2]
