This weapon is peculiar for two reasons. Firstly, the handle is comprised of two parallel bars connected by crosspieces, and appears to have been forged as a single piece. The handle forms a right angle to the blade, providing much more power behind a thrust. The blade is double-edged and tapers to a thin point. It has also been blackened to keep it from glinting. This is not a weapon you want to be on the wrong side of.
The katar is about nine inches long and a couple of inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type dagger.
