A Vulcan security officer uses an Ahn woon.

An ahn woon is an ancient Vulcan weapon, now used in rituals such as the koon-ut-kal-if-fee or kah-if-farr. It is a strip of leather with weighted extremities that can be used as a bola, slingshot or garotte. (TOS episode & novelization: Amok Time; TOS novel: Planet of Judgment)

Both T'Prynn and Sten used the Ahn woon weapons as they fought each other. (VAN novel: Open Secrets)

The strip of leather is 15 centimeters wide and 30-40 centimeters long. This weapon can also be used as a whip. The Ahn woon is also becoming popular in the area of space known as The Triangle. (FASA RPG module: Star Fleet Intelligence Manual)

On Stardate: 14093.5 a Vulcan security officer captured a Cardassian Obsidian Order agent by using the Ahn woon to entangle his legs. (TOS comic: "Enter the Wolves")

Ahn woons also existed in the mirror universe. When Supervisor B'Elanna of Ardana was not indulging her pleasures with her sex slave Thomas, she kept him bound hand and foot using Ahn woons on the torture rack on Level 7 of Monor Base. (VOY - Mirror Universe novel: The Mirror-Scaled Serpent)
