Practice Manrikigusari chain

Manrikigusari means "strength of a thousand men." This ingenious weapon was created to be very concealable and at the same time, very effective and dangerous. The small weighted ends can easily be used to break any bone, when swung with the right speed and accuracy. It could also leave a man unconscious. The manrikigusari consisted of a short length of metal chain, about two to three feet long, with weights on each end. The chain could be used to parry a strike from sticks, swords, or other weapons. The weights were also swung to strike an opponent or to entangle a weapon. Once a weapon was trapped by the chain and weights, the samurai could easily disarm their opponent. Finally, the length of chain could also be used to temporarily restrain an attacker once he was subdued.

Practice Manrikigusari Chain is of plastic construction. The handles are padded. Overall length of the Practice Manrikigusari Chain is 42 3/4 inches

Denix Gun Sword Hanger, Fleur de Lis

The symbol of fleur de lis, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French loyalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light and life. Legend has it that an angle presented Clovis, the Merovingian king of the Franks, with a golden lily as a symbol of purification upon his conversion to Christianity. Others claim that Clovis adopted the symbol when water lilies showed him how to safely cross a river and thus succeed in battle. In the 14th century, the fleur-de-lis was often incorporated into the family insignia that was sewn on the knight's surcoat, which was worn over their coat of mail, thus the term, "coat of arms." The original purpose of identification in battle developed into a system of social status designations after 1483 when King Edmund IV established the Heralds' College to supervise the granting of armor insignia.
