From PathfinderWiki

The klar (pronounced KLAHR)1 is a traditional Shoanti weapon. Normally it is a blade tied to the skull of a breed of giant gecko named the horned spirestalker. Recently, armorers in the southern part of Varisia have begun creating the shield part of this weapon from iron instead of the traditional skull. A user slashes with the blade, but when they do, they lose the ability to protect themselves with the spiked skull of the gecko, which acts as a shield.234

This weapon is used with an earth breaker in the Thunder and Fang fighting style.5 As such, it is the favored weapon of many Shoanti totems.6
