This is called the "Ahn Woon". And it's more of a leather-strap bolo with tassels on each end, about six feet long.
Do we have an official transliteration of the word? So that I can write it in English?
As I understand it, "Ahn Woon" is the spelling from the shooting script. At any rate, that is the spelling from James Blish's adaptation, and he probably used the one he found in the script he was given to adapt.
