A gythka was a type of exotic weapon invented by the thri-kreen and unique to them.[1][3][2]

It was a long, two-handed polearm with a crescent-shaped blade mounted on each end. These dealt deep slashing wounds. A highly trained warrior could fight with both ends at once. It could also be hurled as a spear.[1][2][3] It was much more familiar to the thri-kreen, who, with four arms, could wield two gythkas simultaneously.[2][3]

Collectors would buy these weapons if they were in good condition.[1]
