The distinctive Sai was a weapon used throughout Asia in several forms. Though it is common for the Sai to be perceived as a Japanese weapon, it seems that the Sai was in use on the Asian continent before being spread to Japan and Okinawa. It may have an origin in the Indian Trishula, and may have spread alongside Buddhism throughout Asia - this is particularly interesting as the Trishula is considered an important Hindu-Buddhist symbol - adherents may have spread the weapon alongside their faith.

Although associated mostly with ninjas, the Sai was actually also used by the police of Okinawa for self defense and the apprehending of criminals in the medieval period.

The Sai could be used for a wide variety of purposes, from jabbing, to striking with the crossbar as a punch and it was excellent for trapping and deflecting a foe’s weapon.

This pair of Sais are crafted from black-finished steel. The grip is wrapped with leather and overlaid again with gold cord.
