The Sword of Victory or Phra Saeng Khan Chai Si has an ancient double-edged
blade. The King had a hilt and scabbard made for it in gold, and
enameled and encrusted with jewels. The blade near the hilt on both
sides was chased with gold inlay to depict a variety of figures.
The hilt has a length of 25.4 centimeters with the blade measuring 64.5
centimeters. When placed in the scabbard the sword has a total length
of 101 centimeters and weighs 1,900 grams. The Sword of Victory is
considered a foremost emblem of sovereignty as it symbolizes the king as
a warrior who has the duty to protect all the people in his realm.
It is reminiscent of the days when he was not merely the titular but the
actual warrior-chief of his people.
