- For other uses, see Chaka.
A chaka is approximately 35 centimeters long, and 75 centimeters from side to side. It weights about 1.8 kgs. They come in many varieties, some having longer central blades, spiked side-blades, or basket hilts on the hafts.
A chaka is more of a short sword then a dagger, resembling three Earth bowie-knives joined to form an upside down "T". The main blade goes outward from the fist, and the tow others protruding from either end of the handle. (Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual)
- In the RPG, a chaka has a parry modifier of +1, and damage of 1d6+4.
