This long-bladed dagger is based upon a 14th Century original which is kept within the collection of the Royal Armouries. The blade is forged from 1075 high carbon steel; the rigid blade is ideal for delivering deeply piercing attacks into the weak points of an armored defense or through the thick fabric and cloaks of late Medieval attire.
The curved crossguard and pommel of mild steel are studded with decorative brass rivets; their curved shape coupled with the swollen grip combine to make a dagger that couches and secures the hand into position to give it a minimum of slip and movement when contact is made with the target. The grip is wood has been blackenedr.
The dagger is coupled with a stitched leather sheath with a hanging belt loop.
