So, is this supposed to be a model of a gun?

 its a marital arts weapon 

I_am_Canadian (author)s0lekill3r2008-06-19

I think its like a tomahawk.

thats a throwing axe. this is the thing some types of cops beat people with

It looks like a tomahawk though, you hae to admit.

s0lekill3r (author)I_am_Canadian2008-06-19

Ohh, I see.

What to do with them? No shooting function? Not even a fake trigger? Worthless.

they are MELEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

why are they worthless, these serve a great function. i use them for this: first someone fires a shot from an ARL cannon or IAC's v5 at another IAC cannon of a larger size (V4 up) and someone comes in and uses these to trash the rail ammo guides, this decommisions the cannon usually for the duration of the battle unless someone has an eingineer or IAC on their team who knows how to fix one of these.

dude its not a gun its a tonfa-a martial arts wepon... its not supposed to shoot any thing or have a trigger.

actualy tonfa in japanese means attack stick, which these were used by police and martail arts

Penguin246 (author)2008-07-16

Am i the only one here who knows what tonfa r? they were used (disguised as farm tools) by the okinawans back in the.... darn.... um.... the age where karate was invented when weapons were banned on the island. its what nightsticks r based on.

OK, don't know much about Japanese history.

Penguin246 (author)Penguin2462008-07-16

And by the way this is barely able to be called a tonfa, seeing as its impossible to twirl them with a flat handle. Kinda pointless for anyone who isnt like.... 4.

Thelemic_Potter (author)2008-06-27

what is the point of this? It isn't a real weapon. It isn't a costume piece. I can' t for the life of me understand why anyone above the age of 8 would waste their time like this? Can you justify this being here?

Camisado (author)Thelemic_Potter2008-07-11

You're right. This ain't a real weapon nor a cosplay tool. I also don't know why people over 8 plays with K'nex. Maybe he used it on fake fights or something?

No, have you ever seen Hellboy? Well, these are like what the clockwork ninja guy uses.

knexguy (author)knexguy2008-06-21

Except Tonfas are usually wooden, not metal.


ojochris (author)2008-06-19

I would suggest making the handles round because you need to spin them......... I have been working with these things for years........It's nice to have ones that I don't have to worry about breaking stuff with....... 4.999999999999*'s..........
