Gaffi Stick

The traditional terror weapon of Tatooine's desert Sand People (or Tusken Raiders) is the dreaded gaderffi, or gaffi stick. This deadly, axe-like weapon is fashioned from metal scavenged from wrecked or abandoned vehicles and spaceships that end up in the Tatooine wastes. Luke Skywalker encounters the gaffi stick at uncomfortably close range in the Jundland Wastes.

When the stormtroopers destroyed the Jawa sandcrawler, they left gaffi sticks scattered around the battle site to make it look like a Tusken Raider attack.
