Why attach the chain to a sickle? they could have attached it to any other weapon... there had to be some other purpose to it.

The main reason why the chain was attached to a sickle, in my opinion, is because it was used to grapple or capture an enemy a few feet away.

Yes, but if you use good materials in making one, then maybe it is capable of carrying the weight of a person.

I'm sorry to say, but no. It's a blade. A blade isn't made for climbing. It's meant for cutting.

The chain itself was to grapple enemies, but the sickle was never swung around. It's a fact. Unless some dumbass tried such a thing.

The Kusari (weighted chain) was used like any other similar weapon. It was thrown to grab a weapon or grapple a person and then pulled in. That is where the sickle came in handle. Grab someone with the chain, pull them in and cut their throat.

A sickle was simple to use and light weight. Not very cumbersome either. Most kusarigamajutsu kata involved the cutting of throats which such a weapon was perfect for.

But is it possible to used the sickle instead of the chain to grapple/kill the enemy a few feet away?

If someone is pretty stupid, they can try, but they won't be as successful.
It won't be very effective at all even if someone could pull it off. The blade is on the inside. It probably wouldn't even hurt anyone even if they were hit by it. Plus, someone could just dodge and come in and attack while your weapon was away. See why it would be stupid?

Just like a swordsman doesn't throw his sword at an enemy because then he will be defenseless. It's incredibly stupid.

Oh, I see. What about the weapon called shuko, is it true that it was used to catch a sword blade with your bare hands?

No. They were used for mountain climbing.

I'd say a dagger.It'sa typically double-edged blade used for stabbing or thrusting.
A sword is good and all,but a dagger is smaller and easier to hide inside one's clothes.Plus,it can be used for both close combat and long combat,the latter by throwing them like darts ^_^

Yes I agree with a dagger, you can hide them very well and just stab someone out of the blue without anyone noticing.Daggers are also lighter compare to swords, using it will be easier and gives you a better advantage on speed.
Throwing them are good too.

The only thing is daggers don''t give high damage like swords do.

Daggers are also multipurpose. They can be fitted with a glass breaker on the pommel, survival knives have a compass on the pommel and twist it open to reveal a small compartment inside the hilt to keep strike-all matches, thread and needle, and whatever else.

Once in a training exercise, I took down 4 trained soldiers with airsoft weaponry with only a training knife [Looks just like a knife but is plastic and has a red marker edge that draws a red line when you cut someone.] and one of them was my friend Eric, an ex Army Ranger; Special Forces. I did it without them even firing a bullet.
