The Knife of Kirom

NotesImages
Universe Name : Prime Timeline
Weapon Name : The Knife of Kirom1

An ancient Klingon knife which dates back to the time of Kahless, and is believed to be stained with his blood. The Knife of Kirom is held on the Klingon homeworld in a sacred vault, from which nobody is allowed to remove it. Nevertheless, it was removed by Gowron in 2369 and taken to Boreth. Gowron hoped to compare the DNA on the blade to that of the recently resurrected Kahless, to prove that he was a fraud. In fact, the knife showed that the blood was a match for Kahless. This subsequently proved to be because Kahless was a clone of the original.1
