svadhiti In the Rigveda denotes the ‘axe’ or ‘knife’ used for dissecting the sacrificial horse. In all the other passages in that Saṃhitā the sense of 'axe' for cutting wood is adequate; reference is made in one place to sharpening the axe on the whetstone (ksnotra). In the Atharvaveda the term seems once to denote the copper (lohita) knife used to mark the ears of cattle; the carpenter’s knife or axe is also twice referred to there.® Later the word means ‘axe’ generally. As a weapon it does not appear at all.
svadhiti In certain passages of the Rigveda denotes, according to the St. Petersburg Dictionary, a great tree with hard wood. This interpretation seems probable.
