Warglaive RL Comparable Weapons.

I have to say the azzinoth warglaives are my favorite weapons in any video game to date, Which makes me wonder where the inspiration for these wonderfull weapons came from.

I think To look at them it would be reasonable to assume an exotic or Asian influence.

So my question is: Does anyone know any real life weapons that look similar?
If so i would love to read up on the weapons history.

    Best I can think of is a katar like weapon, but other then fan-lore RL something its unlikely something like that would have been created considering its very very unpractical.

    A 2h variant on the otherhand.. better known from a Tv series that broadcasted singe 1966.. The Bath Leth. which is based on an actual sword (  Heaven and Earth Sword,)  , with an argueble more ergonimic design.

    Actually having a quick flash back to the tv show "Xena", Ringed weapons have been used in history maybe not quite a wargliave but it seemshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wind_and_fire_wheels are used in Chinese marshal arts. So practicality would only be an issue of appropriate size?

    I actually had to look that up because ive never heard of Heaven and Earth, Yeah that does look comparable.

    Thanks for the links, Going to have a bit more of a read on that 2h.

    The warglaives are a fist weapon

    I can see inspiration ranging from Tonfas to certain fighting style with daggers and those circle bladed weapons

    In the game there itemized as swords, But a fist weapon does look plausible. Infact I
    Did a quick google search for Tonfas and the way they are held is very similar to how the fictional warglaive is.
