This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Pyra's comment on my Triclaw icon inspired me and gave me motivation to create another icon right away (thanks for that :) ) so I googled "Rare weapons" and a weapon like this came up. A battle staff of steel, that ancient monks used.
And i thought it looked cool, so I made an icon by the idea from it.

Credit me if you use it in a map.
Don't edit my icons without my permission.
Feedback is appreciated. I'm Still in the process of learning.

Updates:
Minor changes on handle and rings.

Darkened the shading a lot at the holes.
Made the rings bigger and reshaded them.

    It dosn't look sharp. And is it rings I see around the blades? They don't really seem to fit. And the thing between handle and blade seems very weak, maybe make it wider.

    The orange piece on the icon is just getting first in the sight, I suggest to blend it more with the green concept of the icon. Also, the blade is too not-sharp to be a blade.
    It makes an impression that you can't cut your opponents. You can do a blunt attack to him instead :D

    Yeah, the orange/brown thing is a bit weak, and maybe too bright, draws too much attention. But the sharpness... Well, the real object looked rather dull, but I'll make a sharper version if you'd like to, so tell me if that is the case.
    The real deal

    The blade itself is quite wierd, maybe another shape could be better? instead of having the blade go out alot, have it smooth and straight in the middle.

    Updated with some minor changes. Hmm, in photoshop the rings are a tad more visible when resized, as well as in button manager, but uploaded here they lose a bit of their visibility, don't know why.

    They seem to be compressed over here. Still, the handle is still orange :p

    Your update is here, finally ;)
    The handle will remain orange though. But the rings should look a lot better and be more visible now.

    Updated~

    Not to be an ass but im pretty sure they are called Monk-spades. But the actual icon is well made and should be accepted.
