ABOUT KARTIKA
A kartika (Sanskrit: kartari; Tibetan: གྲི་གུག་, Wylie: gri-gug,or kartrika in Nepal,) is a small, crescent-shaped, hand-held ritual flaying knife used in the tantric ceremonies of Vajrayana Buddhism.

The kartari is said to be "one of the quintessential attributes of the wrathful Tantric deities."It is commonly known as the "knife of the dakinis."Its shape is similar to the Inuit ulu or woman's knife, which is used for many things including cleaning skins. While the kartari is normally held in the right hand of a dakini in Vajrayana iconography and spiritual practice, occasionally it can be seen being held by esoteric male deities,such as certain forms of Yamantaka.It is also found frequently in the iconography of the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual practice of Chöd.

The dakini's knife has a flat sharpened blue iron blade with a curved hook at its outer extremity, which enables the flaying activities of cutting, scraping, and pulling. Its faceted or eight-sided handle is attached to the upper edge of the blade by either a leaf-shaped golden mount or the wide-open mouth of a golden makara, and the handle's top is sealed by a half-vajra.

The same way that the bell and vajra are usually paired ritual items in Vajrayana spiritual practice and iconography (one is held in the right hand and the other simultaneously held in the left), the kartika usually appears as a pair with the kapala or "skull-cup".

The shape of the kartika, or trigug, with its crescent shape and the hook on the end, is derived from the shape of a traditional shape of the Indian butcher's knife. Depictions of Vajrayogini typically contain the kartika as one of her attributes. In the iconography of the enlightened dakinis and tantric female yidams, it is common to find the hooked kartika knife in her right hand and the skull cup in her left, representing "the inseparable union of wisdom and skillful means." 


ABOUT Kila,Dorje Phurba
The kīla or phurba is a three-sided peg, stake, knife, or nail-like ritual implement traditionally associated with Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, Bon, and Indian Vedic traditions. The fabrication of kīla is quite diverse. Having pommel, handle, and blade,kila are often segmented into suites of triunes on both the horizontal and vertical axes, though there are notable exceptions.

This compositional arrangement highlights the numerological importance and spiritual energy of the integers three (3) and nine (9).
Kīla may be constituted and constructed of different materials and material components, such as wood, metal, clay, bone, gems, horn or crystal.

The magic of the Magical Dagger comes from the effect that the material object has on the realm of the spirit.

The art of tantric magicians or lamas lies in their visionary ability to comprehend the spiritual energy of the material object and to willfully focus it in a determined direction. . . The tantric use of the phurba encompasses the curing of disease, exorcism, killing demons, meditation, consecrations (puja), and weather-making.

The blade of the phurba is used for the destruction of demonic powers. The top end of the phurba is used by the tantrikas for blessings.
