The Kagi-nawa (a.k.a Uchikagi)
The Kagi-nawa (a.k.a Uchikagi), according to the Shoninki, is known as one of the six tools of the ninja. This ninja tool is found in many other historical ninjutsu texts, including the Bansenshukai (shown in picture).
Kagi-nawa translates out as: “hooked rope”. The kagi-nawa is a rope that has a hook attached to the end of it, and it would aid the ninja in: climbing, infiltration, extraction, tying people up to torture them, tying doors together to keep people from entering or exiting, building shelter and setting traps. The list of uses for the kagi-nawa/uchi-kagi can go on and on.
