The dominant theme of the Renaissance is the ‘’re-discovery’’ or rather, a rebirth of European interest in Classical culture, art and learning. Art and themes hearkening back to Rome and Greece were very much in vogue. This was not only evident in the grand architecture and art that are iconic to the period, but also in the smaller, everyday objects that the well-heeled would use.

This dagger is in keeping with this Renaissance trend with its hilt of sculpted figures and all-steel construction. It implies that its owner is a person of taste, learning and status - such as a noble courtier, a councilman of one of the Italian City States or a Lady of fine means. Not simply a decorative sidearm, this stiletto is much deadlier than its slender blade and elegant form imply; the blade causes grievous, triangular puncture wounds that are exceptionally difficult to treat, even by the standards of modern surgeons.

This 16th Century Courtier Stiletto has an unsharpened blade of high carbon steel. The tip however, is fairly sharp due to geometry. The hilt is likewise of steel that has been antique-finished. It comes with a leather scabbard with an antiqued steel throat and chape.
