Not sure if this staff is unique to Chan or even if it is used anymore, but interesting symbolism to it:
Glorious one, creator of all goodness, Mañjuśrī, his glorious eminence!

I know it as the staff Jizo carries - https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... C00176.JPG - but Wikipedia says - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khakkhara - its history goes back to India, which means it predates Chan or any of the East Asian schools.
