Has anyone trained Randori with "exotic" weapons?

While perhaps technically true, what is the implication on applications of today? How often is a katana encountered? Chain weapons? Probably not many death by morningstar... Just a few less than died by throwing knife I'd guess...
though I'm not well versed in the nuance between someone throwing objects vs. slicing and blunt trauma instruments.
