This is a special model of a T’zun Dak’tar sword, commonly known as a folding blade. It is a modern long sword with a blade made of T’zun steel that retracts into the handle so that it can be carried comfortably and discreetly. Since the handle does not have a parry bar, it is easy to stow away and fits comfortably in the hand.
While a Dak’tar is already an impressive melee weapon, the Honorblade has been improved especially for war monks. It is more durable, lighter, and the blade can be reinforced with electricity, heated, or covered with an energy shield to stand up to energy weapons.
The Commander and Kendor Khan use this weapon very often when they need to get close to an enemy.
