CHAINS of STEEL and ROPE and FIBRE…

…Are oft UNIQUE ADD-ONS to the varied WEAPON FORMS.

Thus;..

CHAINED TO THE WALL…

… Is the SITE’S… and Shiro’s dedication in the visual.

To;..

 

…Our World LEGENDS of FIRE, MINING and STEEL Making…

…and BLACK-SMITHS INTEL… too (click).

LEGENDS. ALL.

 

(…Here’s another fiery yet LEGENDARY Sweet… type of sound…)

CHAINING IT ALL TOGETHER… BLACKSMITH STYLE it seems indeed. Herein. The Emperor who became an Apprentice… all for Sword Love. gifcredit/thanks:giphy

 

Do not be roped into assuming and thinking that this CORD/ROPE/CHAIN/HAIR section of some of the ANCIENT WEAPONS herein or therein and so on,.. is just a simple item or after-thought (click).

Great care and technical production was indeed and as well put into their processing and manufacture according to the needs of the time and place… and Customer.

 

THE LEGENDS OF FIRE ARE MANY… THE LEGEND OF HOW WE SET THIS TOWN ON FIRE ARE… JUST ONE. LEGENDARY ONE THAT IS. IN 1962… Shiro’s BIRTH YEAR BTW… AND STILL BURNING… 2018 INDEED. CLICK SOME CHARCOAL TO GET ALL FIRED UP… LIKE THIS TOWN… TOO.

 

The making of the CHAIN for example became a sub-speciality within the Blacksmith’s Trade (click).

This was due to the intensive labour and time req. to forge high quality and strengthened chain-links. The end-product had to withstand strong forces indeed.

Defending fully and appropriately against such as the LEGENDARY KATANA Sword, YARI Spear or even larger NAGINATA Halberd is wrought with danger (…pun intended…or not…)

Indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.

 

…O…KUNOICHI COSPLAY.?. A SPEAR OF DESTINY… LEGEND INDEED.?. CLICK THE CRYSTAL and SPEAR YOUR WAY… INTO THE ORIGIN WAYS OF JAPAN. 3 LEGENDARY WEAPONS. THE GREAT SPEARS 3 OF JAPAN. SLIDE-SHOW, LEGENDS, INTEL, TIPS AND…more… too. Shiro style pointedly indeed. photocredit/thanks:nargacosplay

CHAINING

…IT ALL TOGETHER…

 

A unique smithing forge process of ‘ wakashitsuke ‘…

=of ‘ first seperate+then join ‘ became customary.

 

Every chain-link was to be forged individually and finally hammered PERFECTLY together.

Special MUD too, was applied to the link joins of each…

…as ANY weak link… would be fatal.

 

TO… the obvious UPSET USER,… AND,..

 

…later… the concerned Blacksmith’s Rep… too (click).

 

(… How to chain… Plant fibres, indeed it seems therein…)

(Video Link)

 

The Metal used was in the main; an IRON composite which,..

…if forged and joined correctly;..

…formed CHAIN RINGS of ultra high strength

 

Able to take on the HEAVY WEAPONRY.

The weakest link…

…would now be hard to find indeed.

 

Another classic.

HISTORY IN CHAINS

 

Known (click) in the Japanese as  THE KUSARI… THE CHAIN ;

      and WAYS soon enough became a part of the SHINOBI TRADITIONS as well as that of the POLICE FORCES and associated SECURITY Details/Duties/Militia/Ops Work Types.

It has and had great attraction due in part to the strict SAMURAI LAWs.

Banning the mass Populace from the SWORD as an available Weaponry type for Self-Defence (… or otherwise…)… attracted… other Weapons as popular attention. Size and shapes and lengths etc could be easily varied and adapted.

Though a moderate plus Training regime required for proficient use, beginners… know how to swing things etc. Even novices can soon enough get whip like actions, entanglements, loops and basic strikes with minimal time applied…

…and lots attention to SAFETY DURING TRAINING… too.

 

…Just don’t get… chained to the wall.!. sayeth Shiro.
