Mars Dagger

Mars Dagger

Hyrum Smith inherited this dagger from his father, Joseph Smith Sr. One side of the blade has the seal of Mars, while the other has the sign of the Intelligence of Mars, the Zodiac sign for Scorpio, and the Hebrew letters for Adonai. The word “Adonai” inscribed on the knife was believed to help the wielder locate treasure and the other inscriptions seem to be tied to magical writings by Henry Agrippa, a 16th century occult writer. The dagger is now owned by a private collector and no other photographs are available.
