A Gandasa is a Haryanvi and Punjabi implement primarily used in cultivation and farming. It consists of a long stick of wood (roughly the height of its user) with a wide blade attached to one end. It resembles a very large axe, although it is used in a different manner.

The use of the gandasa as a weapon was made famous by the Lollywood film Maula Jatt and its sequels, in which the implement was portrayed as an Excalibur-like weapon used by the film's namesake, Maula Jatt.
