The d'k tahg is a vicious three bladed knife carried by almost every Klingon.[1] It is commonly used in hand to hand combat, but more importantly it is of great ceremonial value to the Klingons.[2] To a Klingon warrior the d'k tahg is a representation of his or her personal honour - to take the knife from a warrior is to steal their honour, and is a terrible insult.[3] The d'k tahg features in many Klingon rituals.[4] It has been in use since at least the mid 22nd century - Malik used a d'k'tahg to kill Persis on the Klingon Bird of Prey they captured in 2154.[5]
