Echani Petar

A double-bladed weapon, the Petar is similar to a Kyuzo Petar in that it is a split blade melee weapon separated by a knuckle-guard with tempered blades honed to extreme sharpness. Made by artisan weapon smiths who follow traditional blade-making techniques, the twin blades are covered with intricate engravings that illustrate to a trained warrior the eight stages of hand-to-hand combat. Unlike the Kyuzo version, the Petar is not energized and does not glow. Instead, a true Petar is crafted with a cortosis alloy that grants the blade with highly efficient dissipation making it nearly impervious to including blasters and lightsabers.

The Echani Petar is a warrior’s primary weapon among the Oblates of Rivan. Some non-Echani have experienced a unique feeling when holding the blade — it tends to be physically cold to the touch. One theory is that an Echani Petar becomes sensitive to the Force as a side effect of the ancient forging and honing process.
