Unusual weapons

The () was a wooden weapon
used primarily by the Aztecs. Itwas generally in length
and had grooves along its edges lined with sharpened pieces of
obsidian. Itwas noted by Spanish settlers to be a very
weapon, with the obsidian almost impossible
to pull free from the wood, and strong and sharp enough to
decapitate a man. The last known authentic specimen was
destroyed in a fire in 1884 along with the last...
a weapon similar to the in its
construction, but shaped like a spear. The had the
same obsidian edges along wooden grooves, butthe handle
would have been roughly the heightens man, giving insuperior
reach and thrusting ability. I' m sure either of these weapons
would come in very handy for the Night' s Watch.
The Jainga was a multicolored throwing weapon used by the
renowned warriors of the Asante people of ancient Nubia. The
Jainga would be around 22 inches in length but has three iron
blades projecting to maximise potential
damage to an enemy. As well as being a weapon, the Jainga was
a status symbol among the Asante, only being given to proven
warriors, and itwas also a dowry thata man must pay
to the bride' s family.
The Katar was probably the type
dagger. It is characterized by the Reshaped horizontal grip,
similar to knuckle dusters. The blade would be used in a
punching or thrusting motion, and used properly itwould have
enough force to pierce chain mail. Like the Jainga, the Katar was
a status symbol among the Sikhs and was also used
The Chakram was a disk with a sharpen' ed outer
edge and was used as a throwing weapon by Indian warrior
castes. Depending on the size, they could be hung around the
wrists or neck and then thrown almost like a frisbee.

This powerful weapon was crafted from dead trees

It is infused with the life essence of extremely huge biological entities that provide much life to the biosphere.

It can go from 1mph to 5mph in 2 seconds, and is designed to cut through the corrupted fallen wooden comrades, otherwise known as the "paper"

A coup stick.
Not made for killing your enemy - only touching them.
One touch counted as one coup and was marked by making a notch in the stick.
After the battle coups were rewarded with eagle feathers which were either worn or put on the stick.

They saw the honor and battle prowess required to not only get into striking range of an enemy but get out while they are still alive, think about it, if you poke someone with a stick won't they be pretty damn mad at you?

Especially if they're greased Scotsmen.
