this polearm was the traditional weapon of the Matukai adepts. A single blade was attached to one end, and the wan-shen could be wielded like a quarterstaff. The blade was forged with the assistance of the Force, making it incredibly strong and sharp. Each wan-shen was unique to its owner, being hand-crafted in much the same way that a Jedi Knight built their lightsaber. A wan-shen was often built to collapse into smaller sections for easy transport. In keeping with the Matukai tradition, the wan-shen was essentially an extension of one's body, to be used to help center an individual and assist them focusing their bodies on tapping into the energy of the Force.
