In the Indian subcontinent, swords have supreme reverence even to this day, as on occasion they can still be seen being worn, made, and even used. But with the craftsmanship of swords comes the ingenuity of the maker, as many shapes and sizes would be produced, with seemingly normal characteristics, and in some cases, the most bizarre in others.

The yurumi is a sword that hails from India, which has existed since the 7th century. A sword that is so bizarre it is actually treated as a whip. The yurumi whip sword usually consists of a guard or handle similar to that of the tulwar, with a blade made of flexible steel with a length similar to that of the wielder’s arm span, usually 4-5 feet.

The yurumi has seen considerable changes with its shape and size, as well as the number of blades, with the Sri Lankan variant being notably strange with some examples displaying up to 32 blades, usually dual wielded. The sword can make a very good defense weapon when fighting multiple opponents, as the motion in which the sword is swung can be compared to that of a flail, which gives it a very large attack area, as well as the spinning-like attacks that cover a large area at all angles.

When not in use, the yurumi is coiled around the wearer, in a fashion that the guard will rest on their side like that of a conventional sword.
