Unusual Weapons Part 2

Used by the Mabari tribes of New Sealand. this simple-
looking, yet solid, club was built from nephrite jade.
Strangely enough, the Maori used the inch club for
jabbing and thrusting instead of swinging downward blows
in the way that most other clubs are used, To the Maori, the
mere was a very spiritual weapon- They named their mere
clubs and passed them down through generations- They even
believed that the clubs contained a maria {spiritual force) of
their own- The Maori revered their mere clubs greatly. They
were a symbol of leadership, and if any mere that was
considered important by a tribe was misplaced, great efforts
were taken by the tribe to make sure the mere was located
and returned to its respective owner.
Perhaps the most on this list, the Chinese hook swords were wielded by
the normally passive Shoalin monks of northern China. Beautifully and artistically
designed, the blades were curved into a hook shape at the end which allowed the
user to connect the blades by the tip and wield them as a single.
weapon- The crescent shaped guards were excellent at blocking blows as well as
slashing enemies who got too close. The ends of the hilts were sharpened into
daggers for stabbing at close range. These swords measured from feet from the
top of the hook to the end of the sharpened hilt. The blades saw most of their usage
from civilians, as the Chinese military did not use them in any of their armies.
The was basically a large, piece of wood, with
pieces of obsidian embedded in the sides- Since the lacked a sharp point,
it couldn' t he used as a stabbing weapon; however the jagged rows of obsidian gave
the weapon a vicious tearing power that could cut deep lacerations in the enemy. The
wood itself is heavy and strong enough to clobber opponents. thus enabling the Aztec
to capture the foe alive to be used in their famous ritual sacrifices. There have been
accounts of being able to decapitate horses, which is impressive, for a
horse' s head is a good deal thicker than that of an adult human being-
This rather overlooking, weapon was used in the arenas by the gladiators of the
ancient Roman Empire. Interestingly enough, the gladiators who wielded the scissor
in combat were also known as scissors. The metal casing at the bottom formed a long
tube that covered the gladiator’ s arm. allowing the weapon to easily block and
parry. as well as counterattack_ Made from hardened steel. the scissor measured up
to one and a half feet long- It is surprisingly' light, weighing in at an easy
pounds; this allowed the scissor to he wielded with a good amount of speed, The
scissor' s unique shape and design made it a crowd favorite.
Chinese weapon. the chu nu was basically an ancestor to the automatic rifle - it
sacrificed range and power for a quick reload time. The wooden case on the top of
the crossbow held ID crossbow bolts which fell into place when the rectangular
lever on the backwar pulled hack after firing a bolt- Cine interesting fact is that
the chu he nu last saw its use in the wars of , years after
the rise of firearms- The crossbow could fire on average a total of ID bolts within IS
seconds. Which, when compared to the reload speed of normal bows and crossbow.
is a great improvement- For added effectiveness, some of the bolts were tipped with
poison from the deadly aconite flower, also known as .

Not everyone watches Deadliest Warrior, either. I, personally, enjoyed this comp (and the previous) greatly and now have a renewed interest in weaponry.
So, thank you, mymiddleleg.

Its from the ''Avatar: The Last Airbender'' / ''Avatar: The Legend of Aang'' (dependant on your locale) series. Great series, I recommend it and its follow up series, ''The Legend of Korra''.

You see this bad boy?

Hitler ain't got **** on this ************.
Thousands of deaths in genocide?

This **** is OG weapon, dating back way back when, and if you're into that crap it's responsible for the first murder. God was like "Yo Abel is my bro." And Cain was like "Man **** you Abel" and used this thing to crush his head in with a skull.

It's called a rock, and it's been killing people since before you were born. No need for your fancy metal working or carving. The rock can meet all your bone crushing needs.

They should have obsidian drop the same way glowstone does. Every obsidian block drop 2-6 shards which can be crafted 4 shards to a block, or used in a sword
