Jutte - The Iron Cudgel
Juttes were one of the main weapons used by the samurai who acted as police
officers (or doshin) in Japan's feudal
Of course, the jutte, along with knocking open a few heads and breaking a few arms, could be effectively used to block or parry the attack of the enemy.
As with many things in Japan - a certain status became associated with the jutte. Over time, the low-grade samurai called doshin started sporting the jutte, proudly, as a symbol of their official rank.
With further modifications, several other weapons, such as the sai, were also designed based on the jutte. In this case, the sai was a three-pronged weapon with a long middle prong surrounded by two shorter projections.
Again, these additional weapons along with the jutte were mainly designed for use by the law-enforcing samurai to disarm suspects. And to force them into submission, rather than with the intention of bloodshed, as would be the case of weapons on the battlefield.
