The sickle is usually used for striking and slashing while the weighted end of the chain is swung at the opponent to bind them, steal their weapon, or cause blunt damage. However, skilled users have been able to swing the sickle end as well, thus not employing the chain in the above manner, despite that being the most effective use of the weapon.
