From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A quarterstaff was a pole of varying lengths, commonly made of light alloys or wood. Most notable of the many quarterstaff styles and art forms that existed was the style of the Echani. The Echani praised this weapon and used many variations of the quarterstaff. Use of this weapon dates back to pre-historic times, well before the creation of the Galactic Republic.

The quarterstaff was possibly used by an amnesiac Revan on Taris. He may have used it before getting his lightsaber and being retrained as a Jedi. The quarter staff was a double bladed weapon and was a precise and efficient weapon to use. It was also known to have been used by Valara Saar.[1]
