This week for Weapons Wednesday, I reviewed and tested out some of our newest items including the Stealth Tactical Kama and the Cogwheel Trench Club. Watch the video to get a closer look at these weapons.
The second weapon I reviewed was the Titanium Finish Tactical Karambit. I chose to review this spring-assisted karambit because of how well-made it is for a very inexpensive pocket knife. One of the things I like most about it is it’s stainless steel handle which makes it more durable than many of the pocket knives you find at this price point. This foldable karambit is also perfectly sized to fit into my hand, which makes it one my favorite karambits we sell on KarateMart.com.
The third weapon I tested out was the Cogwheel Trench Club. Perhaps the most interesting thing about this trench club is the history behind it. Back in World War 1, trench clubs became a common close quarters weapon because of their size and ability to silently attack the enemy combatants. This specific trench club features a solid metal cogwheel on the end, giving it a steampunk look that is so popular in weapons nowadays. Watch the video to learn more about the history of this weapon and see it in use.
The fourth weapon I reviewed was the Solid Brass Dragon Tekko. Like many weapons, the tekko have a very interesting story behind them. Back in feudal Japan, the citizens weren’t allowed to have weapons. This caused a problem for farmers because people were coming onto their property and stealing their crops. So, the farmers began to learn how to use their farming tools as weapons, which is how many of our martial arts weapons originated. There were several different types of tekko. Some were made from two horseshoes wielded together and others originated from the stirrups of horses. This specific tekko originated from stirups and nowadays resembles more of a brass knuckle type of weapon. Watch the video to see my full review of this historical martial arts weapons.
The last weapons I reviewed were the Stealth Tactical Kama and the Red Blade Tactical Kama. I love both of these kama because I really enjoy seeing traditional martial arts weapons get a modernized look. Make sure to watch the video to see my full review of these stunning kama.
