Matriarch Vorazun with her shadow scythe

A shadow scythe is a warp blade created by the Nerazim. They are a long polearm with two warp blades extended from both ends, each on opposite sides of the blade.

Shadow scythes were the weapon of choice for Matriarch Vorazun during the End War. Her scythe was adorned with the skull of a zerg creature.[1] Zer'atai dark templar appear to use warp blades of a similar fashion.[2]
