This multi-bladed weapon has four blades. Three blades radiate upward from the central shaft. The longest of these blades curves slightly downward and has a rounded, dull end. The second longest of these blades also has a rounded dull end and points upward. In between these blades is a short, sharp, triangular blade pointing upward. A fourth blade radiates outward (horizontally) from the bottom of the shaft, near the handle. It is a long, spear-like blade. The central shaft and blades are decorated with incisions that run along the edges, outlining the basic form of the weapon. The handle is wrapped in woven fiber.
