Two examples of sai

A sai is an exotic light melee weapon used mainly by monks.


The sai is a dagger-shaped metal baton or wand with two side prongs curving up and out from the place where the grip meets the base of the baton. All three tips of this weapon are blunt. The side prongs may vary in style for different blocking and trapping moves. An average sai costs 1gp and weighs 1lb (0.45kg).[1]


Normally these weapons are used in pairs but can also be used singly with another weapon. Made light for quick movement, many blocking and trapping techniques are possible, but on offense the sai can jab and strike like a dagger, delivering a concentrated blow to sensitive or vulnerable areas.
