Vajra was a short iron staff with one to three prongs or blades on each end, evoking the image of a thunderbolt. It was believed thai the vajra was developed early in the Empire's history as a symbol of the Monks of Osano-Wo, the Fortune of Thunder. The prongs of a vajra could be used in an attempt to catch the blade of an enemy's sword and disarm him, similar to a sai or jitte. [1]

Origin Edit

The vajra might be of gaijin origin and it first came to Rokugan so early that it was already in place by the time the Imperial edict against gaijin weaponry was issued. [2]
