In The

…Beginnings…

There Was a Need.

For The Chain. In Yore. Of Japan. Your...

Needs are Many. Many

 

soon noted the effectiveness of linking Metal. Metal

so Smithed, Tempered and worked too. To

their Ways and Means of Martial Combat and Self-Defence.

 

Particularly in Neutralising Advantages.

 

 

Long- and Short-Range.

The Samurai’s ubiquitous Symbols. The Sword

and The Spear. Both had their strategic Strengths

neutered.

 

The Chain (... and Weighted End…) carried more than

enough Power. To power thru’ Weapon, Armor, Body.

Whilst if needed, could help maintain distance from

 

Opponent(s). Their Weapons also. Also

 

 

The Chain… KUSARI … In Japanese; is so

composed of Iron Or Steel making it’s debut

within BUDO long ago as with that of Body Armor.

 

This Tool… links... (…pun intendeds…) the Many Add-Ons

early Warriors and Black-Smiths so fashioned.

Weights, Blades, Spikes, Spiked Balls etc.

 

Flexible enough too. To snugly fit into a Hollowed Pole-

 

For and when. A Surprise so due. Due

 

Chain, Pole/Stick Type.

 

and to. The Style of Manufacture. Then. Of Yore. Japan.

 

Was to utilise a unique Forge & Smithing Process. A Process

where and by, Each and Every Link Hand Made Separate.

Coated with a Special Mud at The Joins.

Hammered Togethers. Chained.

 

A Style that In Our World. Legends do so and call…

... Wakashitsuke … =

separate first, then join.

 

This stylish Process soon enough became a Black-Smith

subspeciality. Labour, Time, Mind Intensive Works.

 

With the Result, a very High Quality and Strengthened

Defensive Weapon more than able to… Hold It’s Own

 

in Combat. Bending… No Breaks. Therein We Hopes.

The Practical Jewellry Application… KASURI so named.

 

 

Yoyo Ups n Downs. Of

Yore.

Ancient Ninja and Samurai were not Alone

of Egypt, Greece, The Philippines, France, U.S.A.

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.

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.
