Kodachi and Odachi are shortsword and longsword respectively. Basically other names for Wakizashi and Katana. Shoto and Daito is another example of names for these two swords. Different ryuha call them different things. Confusing eh?

Bo/Rokushakubo - 6' Staff

Keibo - 35cm stick

Jutte - Like Sai, with one prong facing back
Nunchaku - 2 chuks connected by chain.
Kama - Sickle
Tonfa - Like a night stick.

There's tons more, but I'll leave it to someone that know more or has a book handy.
