The Ninja Shikomizue
is the japanese word for prepared cane or staff sword and is a type of Scabbard that acts as a cane or walking stick but inside is hidden sword/s.

Two swords could sometimes be contained in one stick and usually only one side of the blade was sharpened, like traditional Japanese swords.
was the Ninja's blowgun and is the term associated with the sport. It usually measures around 1.2 meters long and shoots darts of around 20 centimeters although the Ninja Fukiya was usually shorter, measuring around 50 centimeters long and thus smaller darts. This shortening of the length would mean range was affected, so likely the Ninja would have to make use of poisons ,applied to the tip of the darts, in order to incapacitate their victum. The Ninja would make a seal with their lips over one end of the hollow shaft, usually made from bambo or other wooden material.
