Shikmas are ancient protoss weapons used in the Aeon of Strife. It appears that they are bladed weapons, capable of both slicing and stabbing an enemy in a manner similar to a terran katana.
Protoss continue to use bladed weapons, though psionic blades are more advanced than their predecessors. Bladed weapons have been seen, but as of yet, not in a functional purpose.
