John Eaves' sketch of mevak knife

The mevak was designed by illustrator John Eaves. Because the screenplay of "Sons of Mogh" didn't specify any particular design type, Eaves was allowed a free hand in creating the blade, and he ultimately designed it with two separated blades - one for extinguishing the physical life, one for freeing the soul to allow it to travel to Sto-vo-kor.
