Shem-sho was the name Nem Yin gave to his coufee after the Praetorite Vong seized control of the Citadel of Yun-Yuuzhan. Translated to galactic basic, the name roughly means Blood Scourge. The Executor affectionately coined the blade so in reference to the numerous Vong he used it to slay and because of the mess it made of living tissue when inserted and pulled out. The razor tip was capable of penetrating all but the most durable of materials, while the serrated edge would rip open a wound as it was removed, making its removal even more damaging than its initial impalement.
