A coil of steel, appearing to be similar to a coiled whip, the urumi (pronounced er-OO-mee)[1] is a slashing weapon capable of carving up flesh as well as any sword. The coil is built for durability and flexibility, allowing it to hold a sharp edge, while still able to manipulate it’s shape as needed. A urumi can be used to attack opponents next to the wielder, or up to ten feet away.[2]
