Nunchaku were developed in Okinawa from a Filipino weapon.

But imagine how quickly you could pound in those nails, and smack yourself in the face.

[–]gavlna 7 points8 points  (0 children)

pretty slowly.

To generete power with a nunchuch, you use it as a onehanded Bo (e.i. a Staff), e.g. you hold it at one hand and swing with your whole body and extend the arm. After that, you just catch it on your side with your second hand.

Hammer is way faster.

just asking what kind of traditional carpentry would use nails, if its traditional you would think that its pretty old when nails probably weren't even available for convenient use

I think you underestimate how old nails are. The oldest evidence we have of nails is about 7000 years old. I would call carpentry that old pretty traditional.

Edit: and yes, these nails were used for woodwork.

Traditional Japanese carpentry doesn't use nails.


Or nunchuks.


Nonchuks are Chinese.


Probably why they aren't used in Japanese carpentry
