The kama isn't a favorite weapon of mine, but when I saw this...it really jumped out to me. What do you think?

A single one costs about $70 and also comes with a snap on leather sheath for the blade.

To me , I think its modern, flashy and impracticable - all the things I dont like .

We used the type available at local hardware store in Okinawa . But I find these unsuitable for what we do .

Now I prefer rubber ones - hard rubber . I would prefer wood - solid and all one piece with reinforcing between handle and blade . Like I got my wooden machetes made for training . I like to practice 'bunkai' from our 3 forms ; too dangerous with a sharp or pointy one and will cut, chunk, nick , a wooden weapon up in no time .

Gamma is not a 'strong weapon' between the handle and blade - not 'head on clash' strong , it relies more on movement and sharp cutting and piecing power ; so I can deflect, knock, strike aside with the handle or near the join of handle to blade , even hook over with the thick end of the blade near the handle with the rubber version , so defense isnt greatly compromised ; yet I can slash cut and pierce with the rubber blade on the others body , across the throat ,hook behind the knee and lift , come in low for an 'insertion' and rip back to take out the femoral artery ... etc . techniques I would never practice on another , even with a blunt metal blade .
