The Zhaboka was a double-bladed sword that originated from Iridonia. It was a Zabrak ceremonial weapon that originated as a plain wooden quarterstaff and later evolved into a frightening bladed weapon. It was similar to a double-bladed sword but with lighter and smaller blades allowing the wielding of the weapon with greater speed. It was an ancient weapon, dating back to before the Mandalorian Wars, and incorporated a detachable central grip.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Zhabokas first appeared in the video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, and were later tied to Darth Maul's lightsaber in sources such as Star Wars: Darth Maul, Sith Apprentice.
