This is probably going to be answered in 2 seconds, but i've never been able to find it anywhere.

If your familiar with the Demonhunter from Warcraft III. What are his dual blades called?
And have you ever drawn them?

I've never played any of the Warcraft games, so I didn't know. But I just did a quick GIS and found an image with a two-bladed weapon. It looks like a D&D style two-blade sword. Which means it is just about unusable... Are you look for something similar?

Two curved blades. Both facing in the same direction? If I do a version of such a weapon it will have a much longer haft and might actually be usable...

I would be curious as to your design, though I'm very interested in the name. Nowhere on the internet can I find a name for it. It's usable in fantasy land, it's meant to attack by spinning around in a circle since the blade is on the outside. You would rely on momentum and luck rather then skill and prowess. I was thinking of adding that into a game as a "hoax" anti-hero lol. If you'd like to spent time on it, i would be interested. Thank you!

Edit:
Thinking back now, I have seen blades like this crafted at ren. fairs and occasionally at a weapon dealer in the flea market. This was before warcraft 3 was launched, this leads me to believe they "may" have existed, though a rare, clumsy, and exotic weapon it would have been. I am obviously not as knowledgable as you are, but it could be possible. The ones i saw didnt have an oranate shaft, simple like your designs, and were much smaller.

A blade that spins on the back of the hand like that is pure fantasy. Now there isn't anything wrong with that... but a blade that long is going to hurt the user far more than the intended target. I could envision a version that had shorter blades and a hand grip for stability... or maybe take the blade design concept and make a two-bladed sword out of it... Give me some time to think on it...

Hey, just cause mom dated a T-Rex... yeah, I am right there with you Testubo.

And I liked the snake trident, I had expected the two tines to be rounded like a Tiger Fork, but I like the squared off look more I do believe.
