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.

    Elegant and sturdy

    Posted by paul nowakowski on 15th Dec 2016

    The Shiva is now the finest knife I own. The thickness of the blade is awesome, but that goes for all MW knives.

    As for the Shiva in particular, I was attracted to the visual symmetry. It really is an aesthetic piece of hardware. What a perfect name for the design as well.

    As for sturdiness and feel, I don't know how to do it justice. How can something so visually stunning also feel so useful and balanced?
    Lastly, the sheath is perfect.

    Beautifully Lethal

    There simply does not exist a higher quality, more finely crafted double-edged dagger in the world. This weapon is truly the best combination of lethal and beautiful.

    Great double edge knive

    Posted by Scott Eisenheim on 23rd Mar 2012

    This Shiva is very well made and oozes quality. If you are looking for a knife that has curb appeal and backs it up, buy the Shiva.

    I opted for the custom kydex sheath for the Shiva and am very happy with the quality and carftmanship of the kydex sheath.

    MercWorx has customer service and I am looking forward to my next knife purchase with them.

    Worth the weight

    Easy to handle, well balanced. Being double edged it isn't for the beginner or careless. Mycarta sheath would be nice. Best knife I own hand down, the craftsman ship is second to none and every one who has seen it wants one!

    Heavy use double edged cutter.

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Feb 2011

    What can I say, the knife is without question the heaviest and most well made double edged knife in my collection. The sheath however is terrible. Knife still pulls out even when strapped in. I recommend the knife highly, but buy a better sheath or better still have a kydex one made. Kudos to Mercworx for a killer FS upgrade.

    Mercworx response: We will custom make a kydex sheath at the request of the customer.
    The sheath that comes with the knife has two snap tabs. These tabs are removable to tighten or loosen the hold on the knife. They are held in by velcro. They can also be turned around for a left hand draw on the knife.
