    Weapons

    If you are a specialist in translating weapons or armor, please help me with the words below...

    Claws
    Axe (the kind with blades on both sides)
    Whip (one like Catwoman uses)
    Shuriken (throwing stars* that ninjas use)
    Sais (hand-held weapons, that Rafael uses *from the Turtles
    Trident (three-pronged staff used by Poseidon)
    Chakram (ring-like weapons, that Xena uses)
    Mace (not the spray)
    Hammer - Молот? (the one like that of Thor)
    Club - Дубина? (one like that of a caveman)

    -Miscellaneous-
    Talaria (the winged sandales of Hermes)
    Pinwheel (a little toy, with which children play. It's like a tiny windmill)
    Torch
    Book of spells

    Thanks a lot for all of your help!!!

    Sais (hand-held weapons, that Rafael uses *from the Turtles -- Нунчаки
    Trident (three-pronged staff used by Poseidon) -- Трезубец

    Wow!!!

    Thanks a lot for you help!
    I appreciate it a lot!

    But there's one thing, I noticed you translated 'Sais' as 'Нунчаки'. Michelangelo wields the nunchaks, but Rafael wields the sais. A couple of other characters who wield the sais are Gabrielle from Xena and Mileena from Mortal Kombat.

    Thanks again!!!

    I have no idea how to name sais in Russian, but they are not nunchaki:
    DO NOT READ MY SIGNATURE!

    Probably сай (m., pl. саи), but I only saw it once.

    Japanese weapons are very unlikely to have a native name in Russian anyway, though. So simply take the Japanese word and transliterate.

    Just make sure to read this before you do:

    Double transliterations (Japanese -> English -> Russian) like "шурикен" give me the creeps.
    The above may contain Siberian words, idioms, usages, and ideas. Take care.
