This is a type of glaive. Like the one that is seen in the movie Krull.

It's a weapon with a dark soul trapped in it. It may speak to the user/owner of it. And it will let the user/owner control its flight with his/her mind.

It is intended for a story character of mine to find at a point of time in her life. the story has been on hold for over ten years, and not sure if I am ever going to finish it.

ok, no... nononono.

Do NOT call this a glaive. Glaives are a very specific type of polearm.

That said, this is a very interesting design for a Fuma shuriken.

Yes, that is the more correct use of the word. It is similar to the Japanese naginata. Is something I know already.

But a glaive has been use to describe an assortment of other weapons also, including by some to be used in place of the word sword or just weapon.

Glaive is used as a name of warriors as weapons to a king and kingdom seen in the Final Fantasy CG animated movie Kingsglaive.

Mine refers to what many call a throwing glaive, a type of fantasy weapon like a bladed boomerang. You can see what I mean if you look up "throwing glaive". You will see lots of them, not unlike my Blue Star.

This image is of the one from the movie Krull I mentioned in the description up top.

This is of the same weapon closed.

This is a moment with it in the movie Krull, known in it as "The Glaive".

This is a video of a guy whom made a usable flying replica. He calls it a glaive. It looks real neat in the air. ^.^

Also, these images (and so many more like them) are all called a glaive, so it would seem.




This is from the movie The Beast Master.

Even the fairly modern game Warframe has a weapon they call Glaive Prime shown here.

That said, I am not saying that you are wrong. Only that there is a bit more to that name and how many use it, than what you stated.

And judging by far more examples I can find to further prove my point than I have, I can say with confidence that I'm not entirely wrong either in calling my Blue Star a glaive. Just saying. ^.^
