The ''Uchide No Kozuchi'' or ''Magic Hammer'' is an Japanese Mythology ''Legend'' (which was first written of in the 11th Century AD). The ''Magic Hammer'' was said to be able to produce any object or thing ''needed'' simply by striking it's face against the ground three times. Said to be coveted by many Emperors as a means of not only ''creating'' wealth, but in maintain ''Peace'' (or rather Control) of their Empire. The obvious downfall of Hammer Ownership was that if One was Evil and came in possession of it could bring great misfortune to The World. It is said that The Hammer was finally taken into custody by Buddhist Priests, who secreted it away from The World.
