Crafted by Del Tin of Italy, this 16th Century Left-Handed Dueling Dagger has an unsharpened blade of Chrome-Vanadium steel tempered to a Rockwell Hardness of 50 HRC. The guard and pommel are of cast steel that has been antique-finished for an aged appearance. The hardwood grip is overlaid with steel wire.

These left-handed parrying daggers differed from others by having large, sweeping quillons and guards, intended to entrap the opponents blade with a twist of the wrist - slowing him for that one short moment, inviting a strike from the right hand rapier. Many of these daggers are also large, with blades intended to deflect and take the shock of strikes from larger swords. Although principally a defense weapon, the parrying dagger is well able to fatally strike the opponent who gets too close or to lash out at a second foe. The truly skilled duelists could simultaneously parry with their main gauche and strike with their sword, using both sword and dagger for defense and offense.
