weapons for a non-offensive martial art?

Would an Aikido practitioner learn to use various weapons simply for the sake of defending him/herself from those who would use them offensively, or do Aikido practitioners occasionally use weapons for offensive purposes (i.e. knocking someone unconscious, assistance in a joint lock, etc.)?
