Klingon D'k Tahg (aka The Phoenix)

Postby Lonewolf » Mon Nov 19, 2012 3:00 am

Here are some photos of my Klingon D'k Tahg, aka The Phoenix by United Cutlery. I bought it at a store in Lansing, MI called The Knife Trader years ago, and I can't even remember what I paid for it. I looked on eBay tonight, and there are new ones in excess of $120.00, but I don't think I paid anywhere near that back in 1995. A full leather scabbard was included.

I have never sharpened the blade, but then again . . . . I've never needed to because it's already got a great edge on it.

Well, you CAN learn something new every day. I was working on an inventory of my firearms and bladed weapons for my insurance company, and I found this little gem on Kit Rae's website.

"UC726 Phoenix (AKA Bird of Prey) – My version of the Klingon D’k Tahg knife from Star Trek. I took some of the clunkiness out of the original and redesigned my own handle. We tried and tried to get a license to do an official version from Paramount but they had a “no weapons” policy from the Rodenberry days. Our version did eventually get used in the Star Trek: Generations movie and was featured in Star Trek: Deep space Nine."

(Scroll about halfway down the page, and there it is.)

So, it turns out that this is a screen-accurate version of the Klingon dagger first seen in TSFS. I've owned mine for over 20 years, and I never knew they actually used these as props!

Cheaper than making their own.
