A d'k tahg is a Klingon dagger used in combat. The weapon consists of a single straight blade and two smaller hinged blades at the handle. (TOS movie: The Search for Spock) The d'k tahg has great ceremonial value among the Klingon culture and bears an emblem of its owner's house. A d'k tagh is also used to settle arguments, via two Klingons engaging in combat. (GKN novel: A Good Day to Die)

Stealing another Klingon's d'k tahg is considered an insult to its owner's honor. (DS9 episode: "The Way of the Warrior")

After serving as Worf's cha'DIch in 2366, Jean-Luc Picard was presented with a d'k tahg, which he then kept sheathed and displayed in his quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG eBook: A Sea of Troubles) The following year, Jono used this d'k tahg to wound Picard. (TNG episode: "Suddenly Human")

Following the destruction of the Enterprise-D in 2371, Picard was able to rescue his d'k tahg and later displayed it in his ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-E. (TNG eBook: A Sea of Troubles)
