I have heard a story that many weapons including Indra's Vajra was created with Sage Dadhichi's bone.

Was only one weapon (Vajra) created? If no, then I want to know exactly which weapons are created? And who have attributed them?

And is there any mention of this story in our scriptures?

    @TriyugiNarayanMani No, it discusses what happened after the Vajra was created, when Indra needed one more weapon to kill Asuras with. Commented May 17, 2016 at 11:42

    Apart from Vajra, Three bows are also created from Sage Dadhichi's bone. They are Sarang, Pinak, Gandeev. One other weapon is also created, but I don't know what was it.
