He doesn't know though :

Maybe, the only trace of his parents he found when he went searching for them (see my CD) was blueprints for the Double-Edge that his father left behind on his travels. The man he finds the blueprints with tells Linen that his father was a blacksmith in this town for a while, and that, while he never said much, this "Double-Edge" was the last thing he was working on before he left, but he never finished it before he left suddenly for reasons unknown.

Since this was the only thing, beyond the portrait and letter, Linen had of his parents, he felt inspired to finish his father's work, and developed a working verrsion of the Double-Edge, learned it and used it regularly as a tribute to his father who he was still searching for.

Would that work?

Mostly the demanding resources. The blades would have to be made - and they'd have to be perfectly balanced ... the bar is a few inches thick and seven and a half feet long and has to be made of a heavy metal, also keeping balance in mind, and the locking device is complicated enough ... it'd have to be made out of metal too!

Plus, its not a practical weapon. Just the immense weight and size of the weapon make it difficult just to handle, let alone fight with. Think about it: if a novice were to use it, they'd literally behead themselves because of the way you fight with it (swinging it around.) Linen himself spent nearly a century training in order to master his own weapon :jawdrop

The minor reason its not in common use is because its the only invention Linen "keeps for himself" and didn't release the designs for.

Linen's version is made out of wood and flint... I thought I put that in there O_o

And the original wasn't made by Elves, it was made by humans. Linen, for lack of better words, stole the idea. Since the tribe can't get many resources, the current model is made out of wood and stone, and breaks VERY easily. If you check my character description you'll see that Linen is just too darn cheap now that he DOES have money to hire a blacksmith to remake a stable version of the Double-Edge.

The Méladrhim Double-Edged Scythelance , more commonly known as the Double-Edge is basically a double-edged scythe connected by a special locking device made out of of flint. There is a hand grip in the middle and each of the flint scythe blades face an opposite direction. Its a dangerous weapon, but its difficult to manage because of its immense size (two and a half peds, and 1/2 pygge) and because its make out of wood and flint so it breaks rather easily.


Only one man is known to currently use the Double-Edge, due to the fact that its rather difficult to learn and that is Linen Rain, a Half-Elf, who is reknowned for his mercenary skills. Its brother weapon, the Double-Sided Moonblade, is the weapon that the Double-Edge was based off of. Considering the fact that Rain trained with the Kasumarii before stealing a Double-Sided Moonblade, its reasonable to assume that he stole the design. Few people have even seen the Double-Edge because, like the Double-Sided Moonblade, usually the only people to see the weapon aren't alive for long thereafter.

The reason why it isn't in  common use is because anyone who hasn't had extensive training in fighting would have difficultly even holding the immense weight of the weapon, let alone fighting with it fluently, and the Kasumarri don't really need it because they have the Double-Sided Moonblade which is equally, if not more deadly than the Scythelance. Rain probably edited the design to suit his own unique fighting style ... anyone who wants to learn to use the weapon would have to find Rain to get him to teach them Seeán-Nyermér, the martial art of the Double-Edge, and Rain, a constant wanderer, is hard to find not to mention his unwillingness to help anyone. It'd take a pretty penny to get him to so much as think of giving lessons.

Fighting Style
The Méladrhim Double-Edged Scythelance is handled like a lance. The user must have very precise body movements to avoid the blades while they are swinging it around. For example: to perform a move where one wants to swing the lance in a complete circle, they would have to duck JUST low enough and JUST at the right time to avoid being cut by either of the blades.

Seeán-Nyermér is the martial art of the Double-Edge, and it takes up to twenty years to learn correctly. It involves body movement as well as handling the blade itself. Anyone who isn't fairly atheltic and flexible would have a hard time with the weapon.

The weapon also has a seperate mode in which the lance seperates into two seperate hand-held mini-scythes, one for each hand. This mode is much more practical for one-on-one combat, while the normal lance mode is better suited for combating mutliple enemies.


(Being re-written, stand by)
