According to Star Trek canon, the Klingon Kahless created the first bat’leth around 625 A.D.
Klingon mythology holds that he formed the blade by dropping a length of his hair into some lava from inside the Kri’stak Volcano, then cooling, shaping, and hardening it in the lake of Lursor.
He then united Qo’noS, the Klingon homeworld, by killing a tyrant named Molor with the weapon, which became known as the “Sword of Kahless”.
The sword was later stolen by a species called the Hur’q during their invasion of Qo’noS In the Deep Space Nine episode, “The Sword of Kahless”.
