A starknife in action.
See also: Images of starknives.

A weapon that can be used to stab, or be thrown like a chakram,1 the starknife is the favored weapon of the church of Desna.2 It has four double-edged blades protruding from each compass point of the ring, and a handle through its center diameter.3

History and use

Depictions of Varisian starknives date back centuries and maintains its cultural ties to Varisia despite its close association with Desna's broad worship. Desnan starknives represent the goddess's home of Cynosure, the North Star.4

Starknives are often strapped to a belt, thigh, or forearm, similar to a buckler or dagger. The four blades can be sheathed for extended travel in order to protect them (and the wearer from them).5
