    Add axe and spear sword (wol do) to that list. I think the different disciplines of sword are counted seperately as well, so that give you two more; inverted sword and double long sword. The double jul bong is probably also counted seperately as well.

    I heard of a cool weapon from a hapkido guy that he said the ladies in the royal court used. They would tie a steel ball in their hair and use it to strike with. This guy had the technique done on him (by his instructor) and said it hurt like hell. I don't know if they were really used or not, but it sounds plausible, and definitely cool.

    rope (Po Bak) - guess that's the same as "belt"
    3 sectioned staff (Sam Jul Bong)
    I seem to remember "Stone throwing" (?)

    24 weapons

    Consider this possibility

    The 24 weapons are the 18 shaolin weapons plus the 6 royal court weapons. Peasant weapons such as tonfa, Jool bong, and other farm tools are not included. remember there is no clear definition put forth as to what are "buddist" weapons. The borders of China / Korea are not always what they were.
