Heaven and Earth Blade

By:

In most places, weapons are designed for ease of creation and practicality of use. In others, various weapon designs are developed to meet certain philosophical criteria. This staff was initially designed for philosophical reasons, but has become a very effective weapon in which several martial techniques have been built around.

Full Item Description
This metal staff styled weapon is a total of 54” long (120cms).

This weapon consists of a metal bar (which is a flat oviod, rather than a round pole), with two nine inch curved blades jutting from either end. Two crescent-moon blade hand guards are equidistant from the center. This is the best placement for hands on a staff weapon.

The weapon is used as a two handed quarterstaff, with hands held underguards. These guards are bladed with crescents. This combination allows for swivel swings, push attacks, hooking strikes, along with a full compliment of staff related attacks, parries, and feints. 

History
Developed by a number of kung fu stylists, it has been formalized to these dimensions and shape.

This is a distinctive weapon used by a number of weapons form practioners. While doing forms, ribbons are attached to the ends.

A nice, simple descriotion for an exotic weapon. Easy too expand upon if the GM which too insert it into his or her setting(Or any setting for that matter).

And 100% real. I like this item because it shows off what a touch of naming can do to add to a weapon, beyond the bladed staff they are generically called in some games.

Elven Light Horse - a lithe and small animal well suited to the forest home of the elves. It has semi-cloven hooves, a longer tail, like that common to unicorn illustrations, and always a snow white pelt. Lives inthe forest, able to stand on back legs to crop leaves from the lower branches of trees. Shy and easily frightened, but at peace when around elves.
