A ruby-hilted dagger, alternatively a ruby-encrusted dagger,[1] is a weapon in the Prime Video series The Wheel of Time. It is a dagger found in Shadar Logoth.


The dagger has a large ruby on a golden hilt. It is initially kept in golden box.

The dagger is corrupted by the same evil that destroyed Shadar Logoth and its people. It has an infectious nature and if allowed to exist outside the city could destroy the goodness in humanity. Mat's speculated ta'veren nature kept him protected from the evil fully taking hold.[2]
