Eight-ten essential type of weapons

So basically this is my list of essential weapon types.Within each there is great variation, but it seems to me this list is missing something.

Sword
Axe
Bow
Spear
Knife
Mace
Fists
Polearm
Crossbows?

Would throwing weapons be "throwing" or covered under the type of weapon being thrown?

would flail, whips, or chain type weapons be covered under mace?

a thrown weapon would be under it type. So a throwing dagger would be with knives. I also sort of considered the whip weapons (meaning any weapon with that type of action) but could not decide if they were used widely enough.

Hammer - but that could fall under mace. Still, in my head they are very different stylistically.

Staff - that could possibly fall under spear or polearm but IMO is a category all its own.

Also, chain/cord weapons like a Chinese chain whip, whip, cat-o-nine-tails, other flails
