This Baselard Dagger by Michael Tinker Pearce has a long piercing blade of 5160 high carbon steel. The blade bevels are slightly convex in profile and end in an appleseed edge. The hilt is carved from Chakte Vega Wood and given a ‘’chiseled’’ appearance to recreate a style seen on a historical example in the collection of the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art. A brass plate is fitted atop the guard. The tang passes through the hilt and is secured with a butt and ground flat - the tang and hilt are further secured internallu with epoxy for a permanent fit.

The sheath is crafted from thick, 8-9 oz vegetable leather and finished with British Tan Oil dye.

A popular form of the Medieval dagger, particulary in the 14th - 15th Centuries, the horizontal guard and pommel of the baselard couch the hand and ensure that the dagger stays firmly in the hand; this ensures that the dagger will not slide in the palm when the dagger strikes its target. An English poem even alludes to their universality:

’’There is no man worth a leek,
Be he sturdy, be he meek,
But he bear a baselard.’’
