"It looks like the Sandpeople did this, all right. Look. There's gaffi sticks, bantha tracks."
―Luke Skywalker[src]

A gaderffii stick, also known simply as a gaderffii or gaffi stick, was a bladed club used by the Tusken Raiders.[4] They were used to jab and pummel their victims.[5] The bent end of a gaderffii, called the traang in Tusken, could be doused with sandbat venom, which had paralyzing properties.[6] Though a primitive weapon, it was nevertheless extremely deadly in the right hands.[7]

While he was searching for the wandering astromech droid R2-D2 in the Jundland Wastes, Luke Skywalker got an uncomfortably close look at the gaderffii of a bellicose Tusken named A'Koba.[8]

Around 9 ABY, while on Tatooine, Boba Fett carried one on his back as Din Djarin left Mos Pelgo following his exploits in aiding the townspeople.[9] Fett would later wield the weapon on Tython against stormtroopers with brutal efficiency, easily piercing through and even outright shattering their armour with it.[7]

The weapon also served as a tool for more mundane tasks, such as cleaning the teeth of a bantha.[9]
