      This is a Kama yari as used by the Kumogakure ryu
      ninja clan. Also Used by the Kukishinden ryu samurai
      clan. Used like a kaginawa (grappling hook).
      Originally used aboard ships. When attempting to
      board another vessel the kama yari was used to grab
      the enemy vessel and pull it in so that the ships
      could be tied together which makes it easier to attack
      her with hand to hand combat techniques.
      In the Kumogakure ryu it is used for scalling walls,
      trees, swinging in trees as well (escape), pulling
      enemy warriors in as well as hooking enemies from
      above when attacking from roofs, trees, walls.
