Wind and Fire Wheels

By:

In most places, weapons are designed for ease of creation and practicality of use. In others, various weapon designs are developed to meet certain philosophical criteria. Wind and Fire Wheels are of the later type. However, they augment many unarmed combat styles, so in the end, they are an effective weapon.

Full Item Description
The basis of the weapon is a bladed ring, approximatrely 12” (30cm) in diameter and 1” (3cm) thick. There is a handle area, wrapped in cloth or leather, with a inset guard with a crescent cross piece. Off the bladed ring are short sharp blades (4” - 10cm), like the wiggly rays of the sun of a child’s drawing.

History
The weapon was created to incorporate the elements of wind and fire into a fighting weapon. The blades allows for a variety of “swooshing” swinging motions, as well as punching/ shabbing motions (enhanced by a martial art- fire). They are supposedly throwable, but that requires a very special skill to do. The weapon was designed to enhance certain Chinese martial arts manuvers, allowing for weapons blocks and more enhanced damage. There are a few stories about their origins, but the most substantiated ones come from T’ai Chi Ch’uan.

As with Moonhunter's other historical weapons this one is great. I wish it had more information here instead of having to run over to another site to get the philosophy behind it but it is a small price to pay. All of these are great ideas and items found in our own history.

It would be nice to have more one-stop shopping on these, but still they are interesting additions.

Cheka, they have handles.

There is a handle area, wrapped in cloth or leather, with a inset guard with a crescent cross piece.

Unless you are careless and bring the weapon to closed to your body while using them, there isn't away to cut yourself while holding them.. as the handles are in the middle of the circle.

Tambourine

       By: Yokima.van.zephrill

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
