Historical Background

Sphairai (Spharai is a misspelling) was a dangerous type of Caestus which was made of several thin strips of leather with cutting blades inserted in them which were wrapped around. This allowed each punch to cut up an opponent and even a glancing blow would deal damage. Sphairai were used in Pankration (sport in the ancient world considered a combination of boxing and wrestling - Pankration means "all-strength" or "all-power"). Sphairai means "spheres" and derives from the thick rings of leather that would be wrapped around the fist.
