The chakram is a throwing weapon from India. It is circular in shape with a sharpened outer edge and ranges in size from approximately 12–30 centimetres in diameter. It is also known as chalikar, or circles. Unlike Chinese wind and fire wheels, which are generally larger and used as melee weapons only, the chakram was designed to be thrown but could also be used in-close. Because of its aerodynamic circular shape it is not easily deflected by wind.
