Faux leather-wrapped handles and octagon stems
The set features leather-wrapped handles and octagon stems. The Sai is a Okinawan weapon. The sai was a simple farm instrument that the peasants turned to their advantage once they were forbidden to carry any arms.
Sai is the Ryukyu name for a traditional Okinawan weapon. The basic form of the weapon is that of a pointed, dagger-shaped truncheon, with two curved prongs (called yoku) projecting from the handle. The ball of the handle is called the knuckle.
Today the sai is blunted and rounded at the edges and is no longer used as a weapon for mortal combat.
Contrary to popular belief, the shaft of a traditional sai is not a blade. In Hollywood, sai are often portrayed as much more offensive weapons, being used as swords, daggers, and throwing knives.

This pair of sai features faux leather-wrapped handles to give a comfortable grip. Both sai are measured at 19" and constructed with 440 stainless steel. The sais are chrome finished and well-balanced
