Two crossed kar'takins

The kar'takin was a short polearm with a straight-edged blade and a stabbing point, favored by the Jem'Hadar for hand-to-hand combat.

They were used by Dominion and Starfleet forces in the assault on Vandros IV in 2372. (DS9: "To the Death")

During the Dominion War, captured kar'takins were kept aboard Klingon ships for training purposes. In 2374, Worf introduced this weapon to his son Alexander, attacking him with it as part of a training exercise. (DS9: "Sons and Daughters")

The character Taran'atar, who was introduced in Avatar, possesses a kar'takin that he uses in combat.
