This bold and unique Ballock Dagger is reproduced after one within the Rothenburg Collection; dubbed the Veronese Ballock Dagger, the original it is modeled after is dated to c. 1450 Northern Italy and exemplifies the craftsmanship and artistry of the Renaissance melded with the deadly utility needed for the often rowdy streets and incessant political machinations of 15th Century Italy.

The blade is quite complex in design, both deadly functional and coldly beautiful in the complex craftsmanship demanded by the execution of its form. Forged from 1065 high carbon steel the blade possesses a thickened and stiffened armor-piercing tip. The midsection of the blade is a thinner diagonal form to both reduce weight and stiffen the midsection. The stepped ricasso forms a stout, pillar-like base for the blade and is inset with numerous weight-reducing fullers.

The hilt of the dagger has a blackened grip of wood which is surmounted between an elaborate metal guard and pommel cap which are plated in 24-karat gold. The face of the pommel bears an inscription: ‘’DEXTERA DOMINI FECIT VIRTUTEM’’ - (‘’The Right Hand of the Lord Hath Wrought Strength’’)

The dagger is paired with a quadrangular wooden scabbard which is overlaid in leather and finished with a protective tip chape which is plated in matching 24K gold.
