The Kaginawa: Its History and Use (PDF) £4.99

At its simplest, the Kaginawa 鈎 縄 is little more than a combination of a hook 鈎 (Kagi) and a rope 縄 (Nawa). 

Some Kaginawa were designed as utilitarian maritime tools, others to aid in climbing and others still with the express purpose of snaring human flesh and clothing, ‘fishing’ as it were for a fleeing criminal or the enemies of ones lord.

Within this publication, the aim is to provide an insight into some of these different designs and uses, offering an insight into the strategic use of the ‘Hook & Rope’ within Japans once feudal society.
