    Back to Top


    I bought these and they immediately were a disappointment. They're heavy and completely impractical and uncomfortable to wear. The thick metal just digs into the backs of your hands once you grip something, and the straps that came with them wouldn't keep them attached so I had to make my own. However, despite my best efforts to destroy them out of anger, they are still around since they're hyper durable.

    Will this be on the New Year Online Catalouge?

    I really want to get this weapon, but I won't be able to get an online order until the end of January. Could I still buy this item at the end of January, or is this just a limited weapon for special events and holidays?

    I don't see any reason why you couldn't compete with these at a tournament Dempsey. Your best bet would be to find a ninjutsu or budo taijutsu school to get some training with them.

    Hi godofwar. It takes some training to use these properly, however they certainly do help for climbinb. As for shipping, add the item to your cart and go to 'checkout'. Before you have to enter payment info you can check shipping prices and time estimates.

    Hi eli. You can use these to assist in tree climbing, however it is a bit of an acquired skill. You'll want to do research on climbing techniques and see if anyone in your area can help you learn.

    Hi Jonny.

    1. No, not really. You need something to grip into, like tree bark.

    2. Who knows? but we hope not :-).

    The actual devices cannot do anything; scale walls, etc. They can be used to help a person gain purchase (grip) onto specific items for which they are designed. As far as illegality, a book can be used as a deadly weapon if someone is 'properly' motivated... it is up to the user;however, they are not specifically designed to be weapons of destruction.

    how to climb with spikes

    i recently bought these spikes, but I can't climb on them. I weigh 95 lbs. is there something i'm doing wrong? do you need a technique for them?

    Hi Lola - yes you probably need a little training on technique. Also, I understand that having the ashiko (wp-ni-11) for your feet makes a big difference.

    To improve your learning, try some online videos - https://www.google.com/#hl=en&safe=off&sclient=psy-ab&q=climbing with shuko.

    Although I don't believe you'll encounter any legal troubles with this item, you will want to investigate your state's most recent laws on weapon ownership.

    If you've got the tabi for your feet you should be good to go. The grappling hook might be the only other consideration - wp-ni-08.

    The secure straps are adjustable, so no worries there.

    This company is definitely reliable. You'll notice on the homepage that we have a green smiley face from bizrate. That's a good rating.

    Interesting tool...

    I gave these only 3 stars due to two majoy reasons: 1.The strap that goes around my wrist will not stay clasped. I had to construct a better strap in order to get these to work. I used a clasp version that is working great now!
    2. Not enough room on the top part of the hand section when actually grasping something. I've just started trying to fix this problem...if I can get the metal to bend slightly (which is hard because it's good quality metal).
    Also, for an "upgrade" I've added a slightly padded pair of leather gloves with the fingers cut out. This added some much needle padding.

    Upon testing the strength of the "claws" I have found them to be VERY sturdy. I weight 180 and just one will hold my weight.

    Interesting side note: If one was so inclined, the claw feature could be worn on the upper side of the hand with some modifications to the mesh. Just another way to use this as a self defense tool. = )

    Love these Shuko!
    I feel it is one the best items ever devised by the Ninja.
    Though, through some study and training, I feel these are still better off being a self defense fighting weapon, rather than climbing.
    These are designed for anyone. Hence the big piece of metal. I've noticed in some pictures that Shuko was made per person. If you could fabricate these to you own hands, they would be better for climbing.

    These are great for climbing trees and walls as long as the walls are a soft material or else the claws are not good, also these are good if you are defending yourself against a sword you can (if you are fast enough) catch the blade between the claws and twist and disarm your opponent.

    These work great

    This shuko works great, however they do limit thumb movement and I always need 2 people to get them on. I also recommend wearing gloves while using these. They dig into my hand while climbing. They are best when used WITH the Ashikos, or foot claws. This is because sometimes you will have the shukos to use as hand holds but it makes it difficult to climb without footholds. Hand and Foot Claws go together!

    cool claws

    Nice claws and good quality. I gave it 4 stars for the difficulty of strapping them on, you really need two people to do that, unless there's some method I don't know about.

    They're fairly good, nice and strong, not quite as sharp as I'd like them to be. Also, my hands are slightly smaller than average, and the metal part that goes around my hands are absolutely huge, meaning I'll have to wrap them in tape or wear heavy, fingerless gloves or have the metal dig into my hands when there's any wait on the claws, and the metal bar is too wide and inhibits my thumb movement.
