Learn about the Bagh Nakh or Indian Tiger Claws - Indian Martial Arts Weapon

The Bagh Nakh (or Indian Tiger Claws) is a traditional Indian martial arts weapon. This metal weapon was designed to be worn like claw on the inside of a palm (not on the finger tips). Given its small size, it was easy to conceal versus carrying a sword, spear, etc.

For more information on other traditional martial arts weapons (i.e. Staffs, Katana, Meteor Hammer and Shuriken), please visit the main traditional martial arts weapons section.
