Similar to Chakrams, these blade weapons were designed to be used in tandem (hence the frightful names of “Wind” and “Fire”). The blades were circular in design, roughly 8-inches in diameter. They each featured a series of curving small outer blades (one's shaped as flames and wind patterns). The user had a padded grip (that was constructed into the inside of the circular blades. They were considered a close quarters weapon that could cut, slash or stab. The Wheels of Wind and Fire go back to the 12th Century.
