The dosalnar is a swordlike weapon which many Andorians fear, and justly so, for it can cause horrible jagged wounds which leave scars even after modern medical treatment. A heavy, straight blade projects from its grip and hilt. About 18 centimeters above the hilt, the blade curves outward and becomes saw-toothed. Part of the hilt curves downward to protect the hand, becoming a second, smaller, saw-toothed blade. The razor-sharp teeth of a dosalnar can cut through most armor with ease.
