Mixed Canonicity: This article or section refers to elements from both Original Dune and Expanded Dune.


A Kindjal is a large knife with a slightly curved double-blade approximately 20cm long. It was also classed as a short sword. Many family members of Great Houses were taught how to wield this weapon during the days of the Faufreluches.

Duke Leto Atreides carried such a weapon on his person.

Behind the ScenesEdit

The term in Arabic means dagger, but spelled as Khinjar. The Kindjal spelling is used in the Indian subcontinent to refer to some types of short swords, notably wielded by Cossacks. [1]

In Expanded Dune, the Kindjal is a type of fighter starcraft.
