Bat'leth - Sword of Honor

The Bat'leth (klingon spelling betleH) is one of the best known klingon weapons. The modern version has two spikes on both ends and a plain blade between those ends, while the original Kahless-Bat'leth has got an additional spike in the middle and two additional spikes on the side of the grip.
