In this instructable, I will be showing you how to make a very easy yet effective Kusari-Fundo or Manrikigusari. The Kusari-Fundo is a Japanese chain weapon used by Okinawans (the Okinawan variation of this weapon is called a Surujin) and ninjas.
This project was inspired by YouTube-er samurimaster500 and his YouTube video entitled "spike and chain wip" (I know its spelled wrong but that's the video's name. He's just not a good speller) in which he showed a makeshifht Kusari-Fundo that he made. So, credits for the original idea goes to him, I basically just posted instructions for something he made and tweaked it a bit.
Now, let's get this i'ble started!
Step 1: Materials
The materials that you're gonna need are:
- Two wrenches roughly a bit longer than the length of your hand.
- Chain, can be as long or as short as you like. I personally used one meter of chain, but that's just me.
- Two locks.
That's it! Easy right? Now let's get building!
(I used pics from Google on this step cuz I'm lazy :-P)
Step 2: Chaining the Chain to the Lock and Locking the Lock to the Wrench
Use your lock keys to unlock the lock, insert the chain, insert the lock head to the wrench's hole, then lock it again. Pretty easy step, a self explanatory no-brainer.
Step 3: Repeat
Repeat the same thing with the other lock and wrench.
Step 4: Done!
And you are done! Now you have a homemade Kusari-Fundo that's high in quality but also very easy to make.
