Available for the Martial Artist practitioner, the Jitte features a 27,3 cm round-section steel rod and a leather wrapped grip with a finger-width blade trapper.
Carried by the police in old Japan, the jitte was a versatile weapon that could be used to attack the neck and head of an opponent, but its primary use was a sword catcher and deflector. There are many stories of jittejutsu “masters” snapping katana blades or disarming their owners.
The Jitte or Jutte probably finds its origin earlier in history, when the wearing of swords into some lord's and the Shogun's residences was forbidden, leading to the creation of many non edged weapons.
Now available for the jiujutsu practitioner, the Jitte features a 27,3 cm round-section steel rod and a leather wrapped grip with a finger-width blade trapper.
