Kell's silver dagger is a knife in which the initials "K.L." are engraved. It is silver from tip to hilt and finely made.
The knife is the only item Kell Maresh owns from the time before his memories were sealed and he was adopted by Maxim and Emira Maresh. Kell also got his current name from the initials engraved into the knife—K.L.
After his adoption, Kell always kept the dagger close to him. He uses it to cut himself and draw blood in order to use blood magic.
