Tassadar SC1 Art1

Tassadar wielding a blade - possibly a Shikma or some variant

Shikmas (or battle blades)[1] are ancient protoss weapons used in the Aeon of Strife. It appears that they are bladed weapons, capable of both slicing and stabbing an enemy in a manner similar to a terran katana.[2]

Protoss continue to use bladed weapons, though psionic blades are more advanced than their predecessors. Bladed weapons have been seen, but as of yet, not in a functional purpose.[3]
