Klingon word: QIn pup
Part of speech: noun
Definition: plain spearhead with single sharp point
Source: KGT:p64

(KGT 64):  A plain spearhead, one that is simply a sharp point, is a {QIn pup} ("perfect spearhead").

See also {QIn vagh} :

(KGT 64):  A tip with multiple points is a {QIn vagh} ("spearhead number five"), though this is a bit odd because there may be any number of points and no other spearheads are named with numbers. A spearhead that is barbed is a {SeDveq}, a word with unknown etymological origins and otherwise unused.
