Maker statement: "The Shiva is a beautiful, bilaterally symmetrical double-edged dagger. Ostensibly designed for the same mission parameters as the legendary Fairbairn -Sykes Commando Knife, it has a number of significant design improvements which broaden its functional scope considerably. Most notable perhaps, is the handle, which flares out from a gentle lemon-drop to a knob-like pommel, which greatly facilitates a firm grip, and almost eliminates the problem of rolling in the palm. The geometry of the double hollow ground edges make them both striking in appearance and singularly functional. The Shiva gives you the best attributes of a stabbing pike and a straight razor." Black canvas micarta handle with hollow steel pins. Blade is .250" thick and 1.220" deep with full tang construction. Has a hand rub satin finished double-edged blade. Comes with a kydex sheath. Excellent condition.
