I think its like a tomahawk.

author

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

author

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

author

Except Tonfas are usually wooden, not metal.

author

Ok.

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

author

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

author

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.

author

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

OK, don't know much about Japanese history.

author
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.

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?

author
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?

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..........
