Several possible, and fairly obvious proverbs occur to me:

bImejDI' reH betleHlIj yItlhap.
Never leave without your bat'leth.  (TKW p. 79)

'etlh QorghHa'lu'chugh ragh 'etlh nIvqu' 'ej jejHa'choH.
Even the best blad will rust and grow dull unless it is cared for.  (p. 101)

nuHlIj DawIvpu', vaj yISuv!
You have chosen your weapon, so fight! (p. 151)

And my personal favorite:

leghlaHchu'be'chugh mIn lo'laHbe' taj jej.
A sharp knife is nothing without a sharp eye. (p. 169)
