Octagonal Sai Daggers Description

Sai actually originate from all over Asia including India and Indonesian mainly and are thought to have come to Okinawa and eventually over to Japan, and converted to Jitte for Police use, with the spread of Hinduism and Buddhism. Even though they have come from across Asia they are known today as a Traditional Japanese Kobudo weapon. There aren't many styles train with them these days, although you may find the occasional Karate class or Ninjutsu school teaching technique with Sai.


The Sai Weapon is commonly mistakenly called Sai Daggers as they traditionally are never sharp. The Sai are used much more for striking, locking and blocks. Sai can be gripped in several different ways for different modes of attack and defence.  They have a really good weight to them and as soon as you hold them and feel the weight and balance you immediately understand why they were not used as sharp balded weapon and more as a truncheon. Used for hitting and striking. made from a single piece of metal they are much heavier and substantial than most


These Chrome Octagonal Sai Daggers are sold as a pair, which is the standard use for them, and have a perfect weight for training and feel. The handle is wrapped it a faux leather material and the shaft of the Chrome Octagonal Sai is multi-faceted making it octagonal in shape.  You should never need to buy another pair as these Chrome Octagon Sai are solidly built and tough. Enjoy your practice.

Zai are undoubtedly of quality. Machine made, good quality and arrived in good condition. My one gripe. The zai are not 21.5 inches. Fell just short of my elbow. Measured with tape and total length came out to 19.5 inches. So great product, but not what I ordered. Guess three star rating is fair.

I just received the octagonal version of the sai which i was attracted to based on the prong guard on these particular ones. I have a set of round sai alrand wanted a good pair of 21 inch octagonal pair of sai. Let me just say, these are fantastic quality!! If you buy a pair from a quick search you generally will find display weapons, albeit metal, but not of this kind of quality. These have become my favorite pair out of 8 pair of sai I now own. I've been searching for a style Iike these for almost a year. Enso is the real deal! I can only speak on the sai I've purchased, but they are top notch! Will definitely be exploring other weapons from Enso!
