A kumade was a type of multi-purpose tool and weapon used in Kara-Tur, and was favored by ninja.


It was 6 ft (1.8 m) long and weighed 15 lbs (6.8 kg), with a wooden shaft and a pointed, pronged rake-head at one end.


A kumade could be used as a rake or a climbing tool. One could hook the prongs in a crack or on a ledge or sill and scale the pole. It could also be wielded one-handed as a weapon, though it was only as damaging as a dagger.

As it could be carried as part of a disguise without raising too much suspicion, and thanks to its use as a climbing tool, many ninja used kumades.[1]
