Ive always like that club and sickle connected by a chain that the noghori used. For thise unfamiliar with it heres a little example of cakhmaim using one against alema.-
"Then cakhmaim was on her, club and sickle whirling, lashing sickle low and club high, then sickle high and club low, hands flashing as he switched from one weapon to the other. Alema fell back jumping, skipping, ducking, trying to land just one parry with her sizzling blade and send her attackers weapons spinning away. Cakhmaims reflexes were too quick for her. Every time she turned her wrists to intercept an attack, he reversed his whirling weapons and hit her while she was unprotected, clubbing her in the ribs, slashing her across the thigh, always forcing her to retreat."
"Alema had no choice but to drop to her haunches. Cakhmaim was all over the twilek, catching her weapon hand with the sickle and whipping it around, slashing the tendons that controlled the fingers. The lightsaber deactivated and went tumbling away. Cakhmaim brought his club around for a temple strike, but at the last instant must have glimpsed the sorrow in leias face and dropped it below the ear for a knockout blow."
